    • 5 Steps for Successful Interviewing and Selection Robin Schooling, SPHR December 2013
    • Goals •  Hiring the right people for the right jobs •  Having a fair, equitable and legally defensible process •  Providing value to both interviewers and candidates
    • Step 1 Have a Plan
    • “If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up somewhere else.” - Yogi Berra
    • Determine Job Requirements •  Need to know (knowledge and skills) •  Need to do (behaviors) •  Likes/dislikes (motivation and fit)
    • Competencies •  Observable and measurable KSAs, attitudes and behaviors •  Align to organizational business strategy •  Competency —> Competency Model
    • Goal Learn as much about each candidate as possible and effectively evaluate the data you’ve collected in order to make the most informed decision
    • Step 2 Develop a System
    • “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.” – W. Edwards Deming
    • Think about… …the recruiting funnel …where are your decision points?
    • When will you communicate… • … with your candidates?
    • Data Gathering •  Interview Questions •  Interview Notes •  What other ‘data’ do you need?
    • Data Evaluation
    • Step 3 Find your Style
    • “I like guitars in the Fender style because they have skinny necks.” - Kurt Cobain
    • Interviewing Style • Situational/Theoretical • Stress • Behavioral
    • Types of Questions • Closed • Open • Leading • Probing • Follow-up
    • Step 4 Set the Structure
    • “The structure of a play is always the story of how the birds came home to roost.” – Arthur Miller
    • Format Have a Beginning: Greetings and intro; build rapport; explain format and structure to candidate Have a Middle: Review jobs/experience; ask behavioral and follow-up questions; ask questions to determine motivation and fit Have an End: Explain position, organization and role; answer candidate questions; define next steps
    • Gather Data Use an Interview Guide Take Notes
    • Rating Scale/Evaluation Method •  A,B,C…1,2,3 •  Less than Acceptable -> Acceptable -> More than Acceptable (too much of a good thing?)
    • Step 5 Make a Decision
    • “Men like a ref decision because they just want to get back to the game.” - Jerry Seinfeld
    • Evaluate the Data •  Similarity/relevancy to job •  Impact (how meaningful and/or significant?) •  Recency of behavior/action
    • Are there competencies that are trainable after hiring or would they be difficult to develop?
    • Take Five •  Step 1: Have a Plan •  Step 2: Develop a System •  Step 3: Find your Style •  Step 4: Set the Structure •  Step 5: Make a Decision
