High-Impact Interview Questions: 701 Behavior-Based Questions to Find the Right Person for Every Job Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Tell me about a time…." The words evoke a child's fairy-tale innocence. Yet when used by an interviewer, they can help to determine the suitability of a job candidate by eliciting real-world examples of behaviors and experience that can save you and your organization from making a bad hiring decision.

 

High-Impact Interview Questions shows you how to use competency-based behavioral interviewing methods that will uncover truly relevant and useful information. By having applicants describe specific situations from their own experience during previous jobs (rather than asking them hypothetical questions about "what would you do if…"), you'll be able to identify specific strengths and weaknesses that will tell you if you've found the right person for the job. But developing such behavior-based questions can be time-consuming and difficult.

 

High-Impact Interview Questions saves you both time and effort. The book contains 701 questions you'll be able to use or adapt for your own needs, matched to 62 in-demand skills such as customer focus, motivation, initiative, adaptability, teamwork, and more. It allows you to move immediately to the particular skills you want to measure, and quickly find just the right tough but necessary questions to ask during an interview.

 

Asking behavior-based questions is by far the best way to discover crucial details about job candidates. High-Impact Interview Questions gives you the tools and guidance you need to gather this important information before you hire.

 

"The concept of behavior-based interviewing has been around for some time now, but nowhere is the art and technique developed as well as in Victoria A. Hoevemeyer's High-Impact Interview Questions: 701 Behavior-Based Questions to Find the Right Person for Every Job."— from the Foreword by Paul Falcone, author of The Hiring and Firing Question and Answer Book and 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire
