Although many organizations are prepared to consider new ways to recruit staff, such as the use of the Internet, or video-conferencing links in pre-screening, it is still rare to find organizations which do not use the interview at some stage in their recruitment processes.

Despite everything we can find out about a candidate, from their job histories to their personalities, from their performance in a test to their personal profiles, we still want to meet them face-to-face.

The interview remains central to selection decisions: upon it, we believe we can find out what a person is really like, whether they have the attitude we are looking for, whether they will fit in to the team and, crucially, whether we like them or not.

This highly interactive and engaging seminar-workshop will show participants how to prepare and run effective and successful selection interviews to increase your chances of hiring the  right person for the right job.

It aims to help you learn the skills on how to uncover any candidates' real strengths, weaknesses, level of skills and experience, and go beyond the image that they are trying to project when they come for interviews. Don't be fooled by job seekers who are good in "interviewing" but can't actually do the job that you want them to do!

Attend this workshop and START hiring top talent instead of "actors!" Your business deserve it. You deserve it.


This seminar-workshop is built around 3 core sessions:
  • The Business Case for Hiring Right
  • The 6 steps in Conducting Effective and Successful Selection Interviews
  • Putting It All Together: The Mock Interview
Each of these sessions are run using a combination of adult learning techniques such as short lectures, group exercises/workshops, short quizzes, multimedia presentations, and role playing.

At the end course, participants will be able to learn the key skills that make selection interviews work like a dream and ultimately help make that great hiring decision!
