SHAKER Pro: The Interview

How to Spot a Great Job Applicant, or How to Be One

Advanced ticket sales have now closed. Tickets will be available onsite.

This exciting Shaker Pro event just got better! There is now an opportunity to attend one of two simultaneous presentations, about being a great interviewer and about being a great interviewee.

Your $15 admission includes:

• A professional networking reception
• Hors d'oeuvres, non-alcoholic beverages and one drink ticket
• Optional mock-interviews to practice your interviewing skills
• Attendance at one of the following two presentations:

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.

Or

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.
