Conducting Effective Interviews

New Horizons Learning Centre Perth

Event outline

The New Horizons' Conducting Effective Interviews Program teaches participants the fundamentals of interviewing. Participants will prepare themselves to interview a prospective employee by identifying the necessary skills and the type of personality that will fit best in the company. Participants examine the guidelines for interviewing candidates, researching references, handling difficult candidates, evaluating candidates, choosing objectively, and appropriately following up with all interviewees. Program activities also cover understanding the laws regarding interviewing and selection-equal employment opportunity, pregnancy discrimination, disabilities, and immigration status-and functioning within their parameters. The manual is designed for quick scanning in the classroom and filled with interactive exercises that help ensure participant success.
