Simply Said is the essential handbook for business communication.

Business Context

To be a premier firm you need to attract top talent. When you interview a candidate, how do you ensure that the right person gets hired – or avoid hiring the wrong person? Ultimately your time, money, morale and productivity hinge on your ability to hire the people best suited to succeed at your firm.

Challenge & Solution

Unfortunately, many recruiting managers and hiring attorneys will burn time and energy interviewing without any specific training. The frequent, and costly, result is that the new associate struggles and the firm fails to meet or exceed its goals. Exec-Comm’s Conducting Effective Interviews program gives recruiting managers and hiring attorneys a proven step-by-step process they can use to ensure successful hiring decisions.
