Fundamentals of Job Interviewing for Managers

A good employee is hard to find and this difficulty increases proportionally to the position to be filled; i.e., the higher the position the more difficult the search and the vetting of candidates. 42% of employee turnover could be eliminated with an effective interviewing and hiring process. This statistic should motivate managers to take the process seriously and become experts at it.

For small businesses it’s even more important that managers be skilledin the entire process of selecting employees because the business can ill afford the cost of turnover or unsuitableemployees. A key component of the selection process is interviewing candidates.Sadly, there are many managers or supervisors who are not good interviewers or are not skilled or confident in the processes of selecting and hiring employees.

Interviewing is an art, more than a science and like everything else it requires practice. The interviewer must feel comfortable doing it and must have self-confidence in his/her abilities both in the job he/she represents and as an interviewer.

In this book you will learn:

  • strategies forhiring employees;
  • a procedureforselecting the right candidates; and
  • a productive interview method.

Fundamentals of Job Interviewing for Managers provides a clear, concise view into what can be, at times, a difficult and painful process. By adopting these principals, a manager can remove much of the pain caused by hiring the wrong person. The concepts captured here are useful for all levels of hiring and supervisory roles from the interview through to the post hiring performance review activity. Oswald has captured the essence of the pain points and prescribes some great preventative measures.

There is no more critical decision facing a business owner than hiring. A wrong hire can have a huge detrimental impact on the business. While there is no way to erase all risk and uncertainty in hiring, following the process and procedures laid out by Mr. Viva will certainly go a long way in minimizing risk, and will result in a much better hire than just gathering resumes, recommendations and interviews. It is logical, easy to understand and follow and most importantly, makes the owner think about not only the type of person he or she wants for the job, but how to hire the right way and for a better outcome.
