Conducting Effective Interviews

MBIA Inc.

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 you hiring the best human capital.

Challenge & Solution

Unfortunately, many hiring managers and human resource professionals will burn time and energy interviewing without any specific training.  The frequent and costly result is that the new hire struggles and the organization fails to meet or exceed its goals.  This Exec-Comm program gives recruiters, managers and executives a proven step-by-step process they can use to ensure successful hiring decisions.

  • Follow the five steps of effective interviewing
