How to hire the right person : Part 5 – Evaluating the Candidates [Video – 4:10] (2013)

This is the final installment of a five-part video series designed to help employers navigate the hiring process. It focuses on evaluating interviewees and on what to do during the interview.

The narrator encourages employers to put the candidates at ease by explaining the interview process, then following that process. Employers should encourage the job applicant to do 90 percent of the talking in the interview.

Other tips include being prepared to end an interview with a candidate who is clearly not qualified; taking notes to refer to later; and be aware of the impression being made on the candidates.

As well, employers are encouraged to hire based on capabilities, not credentials; look for people who can learn and adapt; and hire people who have character and are motivated.

The material contained in the video series is also available as a single written guide, available here: http://library.copian.ca/item/11892.
