Behavioral Interviewing Guidelines

        HR Corner By Allison, Recruiting Manager Planning and Preparing For The Interview A formal, planned, structured interview is a valuable tool in assessing a candidate’s potential success for a particular position. By utilizing proper interview techniques, companies can reduce turnover, time to hire, and minimize costs, which will enable you to find the right candidate the first time. Prior to the interview the applicant’s resume should be reviewed once again in order to identify and/or clarify key areas in which you need more information. Information to review on the resume and which should be addressed during the interview includes: 1. Appearance of resume –Was it put together haphazardly, are there typing mistakes? 2. Gaps in time –Are there periods of time that aren’t accounted for? 3. Overlaps in time –Do jobs overlap? 4. Inconsistencies between education and experience 5. Rate of job changes –Does this person change jobs frequently? 6. Reasons for leaving previous positions 7. Job titles 8. Red flags –Information that doesn’t make sense or makes you uncomfortable Interview conditions The setting of the interview is important and can impact the success or failure of the interview. Interviews should take place in a private setting where there are no distractions or interruptions. Remember that while you are assessing the candidate, they too are assessing their surroundings and making comparisons to other companies they have interviewed with. To reduce distractions, inform your assistant and/or department of your interview schedule, put your phone on send calls, have the resume and job description in front of you, be ready to show an organizational chart if necessary, and have paper for taking notes (do not write directly on the resume). Interview Guidelines To interview effectively, you should have a general plan of how the interview will proceed. Here are some steps to consider: Welcome the applicant-Introduce yourself […]

JOB DESCRIPTIONS One of the most essential components to helping ensure success in a job is hiring the right candidate but how do you make sure you have made the right choice? The hiring process starts with a well-written job description. It is a valuable tool which will help drive your recruiting process, determine a salary range, aid with performance evaluations and help set reasonable accommodation standards. The first step in writing the job description is conducting a job analysis. You can do this by collecting information about the job through interviews with employees, observations, and looking at other organizations who have similar jobs. The next step would be to determine essential functions of the job. Make sure you list which duties are necessary to performing the job then list preferences. Factors to consider when writing the job description: What are the day-to-day responsibilities of this job? What knowledge does this individual need to possess? What skills are necessary for this position? What education level is required? Position type—full or part-time? How much experience is necessary for this position? Are management skills necessary? Who will this position report to? Are there any special language requirements? Is travel involved in this position? Frequency of travel? Lastly, the job description is not all-encompassing, and a disclaimer should be state that the job description could change at any time. All job descriptions need to be written per ADA guidelines. By following some of these guidelines, hopefully your next hire will be the right one!

Do you have a happy or sad customer?

Recently, I have been doing a lot of research on customer service and how to set yourself apart from your competition.  Through this research I have uncovered some great tips that I will share with you, but initially I want to expound on an observation I’ve made about the consequences of not paying attention to a customer’s emotional state. This might not at first seem important, but by the end of this article I am sure you will start to see just how critically important this is. Let’s start off by defining who your customer is.  Immediately, you envision the person currently utilizing your service or products.  Typically, these people would be called your prospect, patient, client, shopper, patron, etc. Other people fall into this category as well, however, when you examine this a little closer.  A customer is not always only the person using your services. It could be the parents of a child in school, the family members of a parent using your services. It could be the candidate you’re attempting to hire or the employees in your organization, or even your manager or one of the company’s vendors. In brief it is everyone you come into contact with during the course of your work day.  Beyond your work day, the term “customer service” can be substituted for just being polite in your interactions with everyone you meet. Now that we have defined who a customer is, let’s dig deeper into why understanding their emotional state might be important to a successful and positive interaction.  To do this, think of a child and his or her parent going back-to-school shopping.  In this scenario there are two clients you will be faced with, and both may have very different emotional states.  […]
