Top tips to get the best from this online course.
Many of the biggest challenges in the recruitment process are hidden. This activity will start to explore what the big challenge is and how it impacts your decision making.
It is hard to imaging interviewing for a job that you know little about, and yet that is what many people do. You don't have to be an expert in the role, but understanding the job you are recruiting for is important. Having a clear idea about the key success measures and steps needed to achieve them makes conducting interviews smoother and identifying appropriate performance evidence easier.
What's your understanding of the recruitment process? The term recruitment can mean different things to different people. Here are some key definitions of the recruitment process that focus on slightly different aspects. They will help us start thinking about our meaning and start on us our learning journey.
A short overview of the key stages of the process and what they entail. Many of these, such as knowledge of the job and knowledge of the person, have a crucial bearing on the preparation and delivery of an effective recruitment interview. Others, such as induction, are outside the scope of this course, yet it is useful to understand how each element of the process connects.
This lecture clarifies the role of the interview. Interviewing is still the most common recruitment method in use today. It's core function is all about evidence collection, but it is also an important opportunity for you to project a professional image of you and your business.
People routinely talk about open and closed questions, but do they really know what they mean? How to make the best use of them? More importantly how aware are they of the need for a clear questioning strategy. This lecture will show you why a strong questioning strategy is vital to success.
Specific questions tend to get specific answers. Sometimes that is useful and sometimes that can get in the way of being effective. It may depend on your own preferred thinking style. This lecture identifies what specific questions are and how best to use them.
One of the most commonly used interview questions is the hypothetical question. The 'what would you do if....' Unfortunately, it is also one of the most misunderstood question types and as a result wreaks havoc in many an interview. Find out why hypothetical questions carry a higher risk, and when it is OK to use them.
The whole purpose of the recruitment & selection interview is to get past the sales promotion of your candidates and start to uncover real performance evidence. Probing questions are one of your best tools to achieve that. Typically short and powerful questions that get the job done.
Reflective questions are another powerful tool in digging deeper into an issue and encouraging the candidate to expand on the issue they are talking about. Using actual words and phrases used by the candidate in further questions keeps the conversation flowing. Be aware that over use of this type of question can start to feel a bit like an interrogation.
The ability to listen well is crucial to interviewing successfully. Most of us find listening hard. This lecture identifies the key things to listen out for, such as nouns and verbs and the tenses used and what they might be telling you about the candidate.
With practice, these things will start to leap out at you in interviews and make it much easier for you to challenge, probe and understand your candidate.
British comedian Peter Kay demonstrates, hilariously, what happens when we don't hear things properly. In effect, our brain makes it up. It makes what we heard make sense. In a recruitment setting, the same principles apply, but the effects are much less funny, and potential far more costly.
