What will I need for the interviews?
You'll need one or more candidates to interview
You'll need a job description with a person specification and required qualifications. If your company has company values, you'll need those too. if not, don't worry.
You'll need a private interview room, free from distractions.
You'll need time to prepare and time to interview, evaluate and select your candidates.
I strongly recommend having two people on the interview panel. One person asks questions, the other takes notes and both of you evaluate and select. It's incredibly difficult to give candidates your full attention and take accurate notes yourself. If you really must interview alone, I recommend you record the interviews so you can go back over them to evaluate. If you do this you'll need to obtain candidate permission before you record anything. We talk about the pros and cons of this in the training.
What if I'm scared or I've had a bad experience in the past?
This course is perfect for you. It will give you the system, knowledge and tools to avoid hiring mistakes and interview with confidence and ease.
