A good interview to hire the right candidates doesn’t just happen. To be effective, the interviewer plans for a structured interview and adopts behaviour-based interview for selection of candidates.

This means that the interviewer needs to use the skills, tools and behavioural questions to conduct interviews objectively. The outcome is to hire candidates based on their past/current job performan ce, competencies and cultural “fit” for their organisation.

Participants will be taken through a structured interview process and develop the relevant skills/approach for achieving the interview outcomes that will benefit the organisation.
