Book Description

A powerful new technique for exposing the person behind the resume

Traditional interview techniques are notoriously inadequate when it comes to providing a picture of how a candidate will actually perform on the job. Recently, an interview style proven to more accurately identify the cream of the crop has been making headlines. It's called behavioral interviewing, and it involves getting candidates to truthfully describe how they responded to past job situations to indicate how well they will handle tasks required in their new position.

Coauthored by a hiring consultant to Coca-Cola, Nortel, Siemens, and other Fortune 500 companies, How to Choose the Right Person for the Right Job Every Time explains the advantages of behavioral interviewing and shows managers how to:

  • Identify the skills and characteristics they want in a candidate
  • Develop an interview format
  • Ask the right questions--includes 401 sample questions
  • Rate candidates by scorecard

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Book for Interview Prep September 28, 2013
Even though this book was written from the point of view of HR or the hiring manager, it offers valuable insight to job seekers, especially those looking for leadership positions. The book will educate job seekers on what a company looks for in a candidate and why behavioral interviews are effective. A good book to have in your professional development library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hiring reference January 17, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this book and it's sample questions for help in hiring staff. I have also given copies to colleagues to help them in selecting qualified staff. In using the sample questions, one candidate remarked that the interview questions were pretty challenging!! So it definitely provoked some thought on the part of the candidates!!!
