Understand and utilize a simple and systematic 8-step hiring process.
Recruit and shortlist candidates with the aid of templates.
Use the scenario-based interview technique to identify true expertise


  • Beginners Course - No special requirements other than a computer with a spreadsheet program.


Hiring new staff distracts from daily demands on time, and outsourcing the recruitment exercise can be a recurring expense. With a little bit of effort and a tiny investment, owners of small businesses and branch office managers can now arm themselves with skills required to hire staff, just as any professional human resource person.

  • Use a simple and systematic Hiring Process that covers all the steps

  • In 3 quick steps, define, recruit and shortlist candidates

  • Employ the 3 types of interview questions

  • Take the scenario-based approach to identify real expertise as opposed to paper qualifications and testimonials

  • Understand and execute the behind-the-scenes work leading up to the interview

My course contains no theory but takes a hands-on approach to hiring people.

I designed the course complete with templates so that students, who have no prior training in human resource, can download and adapt for their particular situation.

Throughout the course, you’ll do several exercises – True or False type – just so you can take stock of your progress.

At the end of the course, you’ll be able to confidently handle your own hiring.

Who this course is for:

  • Owners of small businesses who wish to handle their own hiring.
  • Managers who want a quick grounding on the various aspects of hiring.
  • Students of management.
