Course Description

The face-to-face interview is the most important step in the hiring process. Many HR professionals are not aware of the responsibility of the task. Personal interviews and employment applications are the most frequently used tools for selecting the best-qualified candidates for employment.

Human professionals engaged in the hiring process normally devote much of their time to interviewing. However, there is an appalling lack of effort given to systematic attempts at building improvements into this age-old process. No systematic process is in place through one can ace the interview process fairly. Interviewing remains one of those activities which we think we know all about merely because we have been doing it so long; we have been lulled by habit. It seems apparent that a modest effort aimed at an analysis of our interviewing techniques would yield generous returns.

Recruiting new employees is a difficult task for many stakeholders in a company. Asking the right questions in a job interview can be tough, especially when the person asking the questions is not trained to know the limits of what they can ask. For many, it takes years to learn and perfect the dos and don’ts of interviewing.

Very Good

This was a very well planned and presented webinar. The instructor hit the points while trying to cover all important data in a limited amount of time. She went from one topic to the next very smoothly and explained the reasoning for most laws or limitations.


Andreea King, HRCI - aPHR

Great opportunity to learn about the different interviewing do’s and don’ts, especially those sensitive questions that may seem innocent (asking a candidate about their family or kids), but carry serious implications.


Peter W Fierro, CPA (US)

I learn from this course however, I notice the instructor was more focus on California samples vs other states. As am new taking this course, I think I still have lots to learn.
