presented by Kevin Dunn

How many times have you found yourself asking, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” or “Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses?” knowing that any smart candidate will have prepared for exactly those questions with answers tailored to the job description? How many times have you hired someone who breezed through those standard interview questions but ended up being an expensive bad hire? Wouldn’t you like to have more of a chance to weed out those candidates at an earlier stage?

Behavioral interviewing is a great way to avoid those clichés and get into a meaningful conversation with your potential hires. It revolves around open questions that invite a candidate to talk about how they have handled specific situations in real life.

The idea behind the approach is that past behavior is a better predictor of future performance than prepared answers to standard questions. Used appropriately, behavioral interviewing techniques can help you to make better informed hiring decisions and identify candidates who have the skills and attitude to shine at your company.

Join our free webinar on Wednesday April 1, 2015 for practical guidance on proven behavioral interviewing techniques and how best to apply them to reduce your risk of making a bad hire.

During the webinar, speaker Kevin Dunn will share his extensive experience of behavioral interviewing, including:

· why you should be using behavioral interviewing

· techniques for creating useful questions and evaluating the answers

· how you can set up successful behavioral interviews

Who should attend?
If you’re a recruiter who wants to use behavioral interviewing techniques to make better informed hiring decisions, identify the best candidates for your company and reduce the risk of bad hires, join us on Wendesday, March 11.

Social media has taken over our lives. We wake up in the morning with Facebook, Tweet about what’s trending, and cook the latest recipes from Pinterest for dinner. It’s no surprise that these tools have found their way into our offices too, and “social recruiting” is all the rage.

It’s a chance to take advantage of your company’s brand and build a community of potential hires already sold on your business and your culture.

The ability to understand and share your employer brand with people who support your goals, whether they’re looking for a job right now or not, will increase your network and impact your abilty to be proactive. It can take you from being a good recruiter to a great one.

Join our free webinar on Wednesday, April 15, to learn how you can get the best out of social recruiting and take your skills to the next level.

During the webinar, our speaker Nicky Gibson will share her expertise in all aspects of social recruiting and communicating a compelling brand. Nicky will cover:

·       Partnering  with your internal marketing team to determine your employer brand and leverage your consumer brand in social recruiting

·       Creating internal and external brand advocacy to drive social media engagement with future talent

·       Using the company’s mission and culture to create rich content that engages the talent you want to hire

Who should attend?

presented by Jessica Max

Employee referrals remain the No. 1 source of hire, but many companies aren’t capitalizing on this goldmine. They’re failing to make the most an existing program or they don’t even have an ERP in place at all.

An ERP is a critical tool for recruitment but it’s about so much more than simply getting a candidate into the system. A truly effective referral program is high-touch and part of a bigger picture; a culture of engaged, invested, and collaborative employees.

But how to choose, and manage a program that will work for your company? With all the new recruiting tools and processes on the market, it’s easy to become confused or distracted by the shiny objects. But shinier isn’t always better, and in this webinar we’ll explore the factors that really matter when it comes to mining the rich seam of employee referrals:

·       Increasing quality employee referrals

·       Engaging current employees in the talent acquisition mission

·       Guiding more relevant referrals

·       Partnering with the hiring teams on targeted campaigns

Join our free webinar on Wednesday, April 22, for practical insights into some of the more nuanced aspects of building and managing a robust ERP.

Our speaker, Jessica Max, will share her experience of what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to getting the most out of your ERP. She’ll walk through some common ERP complaints and offer tips, ideas, and examples of more creative employee referral generation

Who should attend?

If you’re thinking about a new ERP or just want make your existing program shine, you’ll get plenty of good ideas on Wednesday, April 22.
