Identifying Prior to Hiring Who Will Walk on Water vs. Sink Rapidly on the Job
The problem with most interviews is that how applicants perform tells you almost nothing about how well they will do in their jobs. In his talk, Rotman School of Management Professor Gary Latham will explain how assessing an applicant’s intentions will help you build a more effective team.
Effective Interviewing from Start to Finish
A successful interview is like a negotiation that requires planning and true engagement with both the interviewer and the organization. In this talk, Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources Lecturer Bob Thompson will compare the interview process to the eight phases of negotiation, and discuss skills and strategies for making a great impression during an interview session.
