Smoke Out Impostors in Job Interviews – and Avoid the Staggering Cost of Bad Hires

Duration: 90 minutes

It goes without saying that some candidates are excellent in interviews. They’re poised, present themselves well without coming off too strong, and appear to have exemplary work experience. But failing to dig past a candidate’s interviewing persona is a grave mistake.

Why? Hiring the wrong person is a disaster. First you incur recruiting, benefits, training and salary costs with zero return on investment. Second, you pay an opportunity cost: How much value could the RIGHT person have delivered?


A lot. But you never see a nickel of it.

Smart companies have no tolerance for recruiting slip-ups because bad hires hurt morale, decrease productivity and sap confidence in management. Bad hires, frankly, kill a hiring manager’s reputation.

How confident are you that you can smoke out slick job candidates who misrepresent themselves or genuinely believe they can do a job they can’t? How confident are you that you actually have a method for interviewing job candidates so you end up with the “right” person?

This webinar will give HR executives and interviewing managers the tools they need to cut through interview hype and determine whether a candidate is actually right for the job.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn:

    • How to tell the difference between someone who interviews well vs. someone who’ll perform well on the job
    • The importance of determining in advance what you REALLY need to learn in the interview 
    • Powerful interview questions that force authentic answers and uncover the truth 
    • How to stay objective and not get “snowed” by smooth-talking interviewer
    • A proven agenda to follow during the interview that keeps you in control 
    • How to “read” what interviewees say and assess whether they possess the most important qualities you need (which are the hardest to determine)
    • What resumes don’t tell you that you must find out
    • The most common mistakes that lead to bad hires, including:
      • Asking questions that don’t require truthful, revealing answers 
      • Asking questions that allow candidates to feed the interviewers the exact answers they want to hear 
      • Feeling so desperate to fill an opening that a candidate seems like “the one” despite obvious clues to the contrary
