Interviewing & Selection: Hiring the Best Fit

Selecting “best fit” candidates who are “high performers” is required to create a motivated and skilled workforce that is committed to our mission and can contribute in a positive way to our daily objectives. In order to select excellent candidates, hiring managers must develop their skills in candidate assessment and interviewing.

Upcoming Courses

During this 4 hour course, participants will practice the essentials of finding the best candidates for their open positions.

Participants in this course will:

  • Review “best practices” including structured interview processes and behavioral-based interviews and analyze why these practices lead to more effective hiring processes.
