Virtually nobody gets hired today without a job interview. Unfortunately, relatively few companies conduct highly effective job interviews. Traditional employment interviews are typically no more accurate than flipping a coin, but a better way does exist. Behavioral interviewing is a highly researched interviewing technique that has consistently been shown to significantly improve both interviewing accuracy and the candidate experience.

In this webinar, interviewing expert Dr. Patrick Hauenstein and HR Senior Leader John Reynolds will cover the fundamental components of behavioral interviewing, how behavioral interviews differ from traditional interviews and how they avoid common interviewer mistakes and result in a compelling ROI for the organization.

Participants will also be introduced to a unique “blended interview” approach that extends the inherent power of behavioral interviewing and optimizes the candidate experience. Finally, participants will learn best practices for helping interviewers develop their interviewing skills in a highly efficient and cost effective manner.
