Building Your Team: Interview Dynamics (formerly Hire for Excellence: Interviewing)

Workshop # IHEI

Do you have a plan when interviewing candidates? Do you have a tough time gathering information from potential employees? Most interviewers don’t know what to ask or ask the wrong questions, leading to bad hires and worse. During this workshop, learners become ‘interviewing dynamics’ and discover best practices for conducting behavioral based interviews in the workplace. Learners will create behavioral questions to give them the best chance to gather candidate information, develop a candidate evaluation strategy to achieve the best results - before, during and after the interview, and discover how to guide the interview conversation to get the answers to make the best hire.

This workshop is ideal for all Kent State employees involved in the hiring process.

Through Interview Dynamics, you will:

  • Develop a candidate evaluation strategy to achieve the best results - before, during and after the interview
  • Discover and practice a step-by-step interview process that eliminates commonly made mistakes
  • Learn how to form proper behavioral questions that give you the best chance to gather candidate information
  • Practice a four step method to form a comprehensive picture of your candidates
