It’s more competitive than ever to attract, interview and hire top talent.  Could your current interviewing process be sabotaging your ability to attract and hire the best talent?    

Technology has made interviewing and hiring an ever-evolving process. As the job market changes, you need to review and change your interview process to remain competitive.The one thing that never changes is the need for you to interview and hire the best possible talent for your company.

Job seekers are more connected than at any other time in history. This adds a new challenge to the competition you face when interviewing top talent. Even if candidates are not in an active job search, sites like LinkedIn, provide them with great exposure to recruiters, as well as access to other new job opportunities.  

If you want to interview and hire the best talent, it may be time to make changes in your interview process.


Your goal is to hire the best people you possibly can. That means your interview process should be the best it possibly can. The stakes in today’s competitive job market r simply too high to do otherwise.

Your interviews are the foundation for hiring employees who will be engaged, retained and most importantly help your company attain goals and objectives.

By attending, you will understand how to even more effectively:

  • Create an interview process
  • Prepare more effectively
  • Involve the right people
  • Prevent interview bias and fatigue
  • Reveal candidate priorities
  • Identify who the best candidates really are
  • Allow candidates a chance to weed themselves out
  • Tailor job offers


When you’re looking to hire great employees, your interview process should help not hinder your efforts. If you’re offers are being turned down or individuals that are hired don’t show up on their first day of employment, something is obviously missing in your interview process.  This training will begin by outlining options to consider for an effective interview process.

Next, we’re only human and even the smallest things can affect our judgement or allow inconsistencies into our interview process.  But consistency is crucial to a strong successful interview process, so we will provide solutions you can easily implement.  We will also address the best people you could involve in the interview process.

We are all hard-wired to seek out common traits and interests in others, which unfortunately means that our interviewing process could be sabotaged by our own favouritism or bias.  If you are conducting hours of back-to-back interviews, it’s difficult to stay focused and not experience interview fatigue.  Solutions for these will be discussed.

Preparation is something we expect of the individuals we interview, but we should also spend twice as much time preparing as we do interviewing candidates.  Learn what to prepare and how this impacts your ability to make an informed and fair hiring decision.

Interviews give you a chance to evaluate talent, not resumes or CV’s.  In addition to confirming experience you will learn how to reveal their character and understand what they’re really looking for.  You will also observe their ability to execute professionally during your interview process.

Lastly, you will learn how to tailor your job offers around the desires and goals of each individual.


During this webinar we will review every aspect of the interview process to determine what changes would positively influence hiring the best talent. This will include budget approval, required paperwork, number of interviews, timeframe, individuals involved, testing, interview style, questions asked, assessment tools, credential verification, background checks, , back-filling candidates who are screened out and the offer process.
