Explore how to select the right staff in this HR and manager’s guide to hiring interviewing skills, so you can select a staff to build the best and brightest team. Research shows that job interviews are often no more reliable than tossing a coin.

Do you want to hire the right candidate for your organisation? Are your interviews failing to produce enough reliable information to pick the right person? Selecting staff with the right skills, knowledge, and attitude is important for building the best and brightest teams.

This virtual course explores how to assess a candidate’s suitability for a role, with a focus on interviewing skills in person, by phone, or online. Discover how to ask the right questions to deduct their skill level and assess their attitudes and values.

Explore how to select the right staff and follow lawful hiring processes in this HR and manager’s guide to hiring and interviewing skills.
