Behavioral Based Interviewing – Techniques to Hire the Right Person the First Time

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016 at 1:30 pm ET

Duration: 90 minutes

Date: 05/24/2016

Credits: 1.5





    Hire smart – fire less. It’s that simple. The better job you do interviewing applicants and hiring the right person, your business will benefit. The cost of a bad hire can be significant, not only due to poor performance, but by the employee alienating fellow workers, clients and customers. All too often untrained interviewers engage applicants in a conversation – not an effective, probing analysis of the applicant’s strengths, weaknesses and chances of success.


    Today’s best practices dictate that you use behavior-based interviewing because of the recognized principle that past and present behavior is the best indicator of future performance. This webinar will provide you with critical knowledge to make correct hiring decisions.



    • How to prepare for an interview through an analysis of the job to be filled
    • The most efficient screening method for selecting candidates to interview
    • Keys to reviewing resumes and application forms
    • Using interviewing as a predictive tool rather than as a conversation
    • How to structure behavior-based questions
    • The behavior-based questions you should be asking to prevent costly hiring mistakes
    • Learn what is wrong with the question, “tell me about yourself”
    • The vital role silence plays when interviewing
    • What is an applicant’s body language telling you?
    • When to end an interview immediately
    • Essential post-interview notes to take
    • Why you MUST get a release
    • The Americans With Disabilities Act – interviewing do’s-and-don’ts for disabled applicants
