Introduction to Competency Based Interviewing & Assessment Skills:

  • Have You… Ever felt your candidates were pulling the wool over your eyes? Ever found your chosen candidate failed to deliver the promised goods? Ever found your perfect candidate looks great on paper but can’t actually do the job??
  • Recruitment and selection and assessing people on the job have been everybody's business in the corporate world. The belief is that any person who is holding a responsible position is eligible to interview/assess a person. While the right to participate in the selection and assessment process is legitimate to a supervisor at interest, the feeling of taking it for granted that the person would have the skills to interview, assess and select/reject the right person is not necessarily correct.
  • Many of us confess to the fact that we have not been trained on how to conduct a selection interview or assess the competencies or have received any update about the emerging trends in this process.
  • The program on competency based interviewing and assessment skills has been conceived with this need in mind. The program would immensely benefit all those responsible persons who spearhead recruitment, selection and assessing people for initiating developmental process like mentoring/coaching in industry and will provide the participants with certain tools and techniques that can be put to use right away on the job.

The program will focus on creating awareness to the importance of identifying key competencies required for a specified job. It will enable the participants to make selection/assessment decision based on concrete information, rather than on subjective gut feel.
