Predicting Success: Black Belt in Interviewing
In our Predicting Success: Black Belt in Interviewing programme we go beyond behavioural interviewing 101 and teach you to focus not just on whether or not the candidate is a good cultural fit, but also whether they’ll meet your hiring bar and if they can deliver at the level you expect. You can’t do all of this with traditional “tell me about a time” questions, and you certainly can’t do it by counting years of experience or looking at pedigree to predict capabilities. But you can do it with the practical takeaways you’ll get from this programme.
