About the Session:

In this highly interactive one-day workshop you will learn how to prepare for, conduct, and choose the right person for the job.  The workshop is designed to provide a hands-on experience, complete with seeing an interview from start to finish and trying out your own ‘mock’ interview, using tools and techniques of behaviour-based interviewing. The Behaviour Description Interview (BDI) method of interviewing is a best practice that gets beyond the superficial answers from candidates and instead gets specific and in-depth examples so that interviewers can choose the right person for the job.  Whether you're an experienced or novice interviewer, you will benefit from these techniques and will be able to use them immediately in your next interview.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  •         Plan, structure, conduct and evaluate behaviour focused interviews
  •         Reduce turnover and cost of new hires
  •         Design and ask relevant behaviour based interview questions  
  •         Use the “STAR” technique to allow the candidate to showcase his/her skills and experience
  •         Conduct interviews that are compliant with human rights legislation
  •         Assess a candidate's responses against job description and requirements
  •         Use probing questions during interview questioning
  •         Use behaviour based questions to conduct better reference checks
  •         Avoid common interviewer mistakes
  •         Use tools, techniques and tip sheets to use in your next interview
