Interviewing - Successful Selection

Interviewing - Successful Selection

Most managers find themselves running selection interviews at some time. Getting it right is important – a new employee may be with you for a long time and may play a key role in the team’s performance. For many managers, the experience of interviewing can be time consuming and daunting.

Common fears include

  • What if I say the wrong thing and end up in trouble?
  • What if I choose the wrong person and end up with someone who can’t do the job or is hard work to manage?
  • I’ve never run an interview before – I don’t know where to start...

This topic aims to address the fears and provide guidance and structure to give you the confidence to make successful selections.
