Interview Skills Development

Why do you need to teach your staff how to interview and select potential candidates? Organisations success rides on tapping the right people for the job. Interviewing is really more art than science and, all-too-often, job candidates who look good on paper and ace the interview process completely choke once they actually get the job. Bad hires are more than an inconvenience: they’re expensive.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Writing a clear and simple job profile quickly and easily. Follow a systematic selection process, which includes the structuring of interviews and questioning of candidates to effectively address selection criteria.
  • Being really clear on what your Interviewing outcomes will be.
  • Understanding the emotional aspects of interviewing.
  • Work to assess and integrate data from candidates and objectively evaluate against the selection criteria Produce objective evidence-based reports regarding the selection process.


With more and more job seekers continuing to come onto the market, and seemingly happy to take any suitable job, it has never been more important to get the right information quickly. The ability to recruit, interview, and hire the best candidates is essential to every organization’s success.

After the completion of this course your consultant would be more transparent, structured to hire the best candidates ultimately resulting in improved billings and a significantly improved candidate to placement ratio.
