The Interview Strategy You Should Know

Rather than having a casual conversation, "getting a feel" for the candidate or going on "gut instinct" – it's vital to consider how to make your interview process consistent and remove subjectivity.

Why is competency interviewing powerful?

Competency Based Interviewing is a technique that focuses your interview around the specific skills that a candidate needs to be successful in the role.  If you've never had formal interview training, you'll find that this style of interviewing is probably very different from your current approach – however it is proven to be much more effective.  We've put together a short video lesson, plus a PDF guide and an interviewing template that you can use in your next interview.
