This workshop will help you:


Reduce the costly and time-consuming mistake of hiring the wrong people.


Prepare so thoroughly that you’ll hardly ever feel worried about interviewing candidates.


Know exactly what questions to ask - and have so many questions you'll never run out.


Reduce the number of questions to only those that can best help you make a decision.


Do the necessary routine checks so candidates being "economical with the truth" won't catch you out.


Examine curriculum vitae, covering letters and reference letters to see if there are any inconsistencies or worrying issues.


Create an informal interview setting so that people open up and tell you more about themselves - their worries, likes, dislikes and attitudes.


Ensure that all candidates (successful and unsuccessful) gain the best perception of you and your organisation.

Follow these ten FREE brilliant tips and more when you do the FREE taster exercise

  1. Get absolutely clear in your own mind what the new person has to do to succeed in the job.

  2. Ensure the job advertisement makes clear what that job entails - if you don't you'll waste time sifting irrelevant applications.

  3. Find at least five things about the job that may hinder or challenge the new employee and do what you can to remove the hindrances in advance.

  4. Devise meaningful questions - each one should test for something very specific - especially how candidates will deal with the difficulties of the job.

  5. Analyse the curriculum vitae (CV) with a fine toothcomb. Check up on qualifications, previous places of employment and dates that don't tie up. Note: in some countries the CV is called a resume. In the workshop we'll stick to CV to reduce repetition.

  6. Check each reference by telephone - actually speak to the referee.

  7. Learn to read between the lines in references - sometimes referees use coded language because they want to be honest but don't want to be blunt.

  8. Prepare for the interview - in detail. Work out every question and who will ask each one. Think about an appropriate venue and the length of the interview.

  9. Make the interview as informal as possible. People will tell you more about themselves and their real likes and dislikes if they are relaxed.

  10. Avoid silly games and pseudo-science. Handwriting analysis and psychological tests, and keeping candidates up all night will not only waste your time - they'll lose you good candidates.

And there's more...

These ten tips are only the start.

As you probably know there's more to brilliant recruiting than just asking questions. Preparation is all and there are certain vital steps that if missed out will lead to serious mistakes.
