What would you say about a job interview in a locker room?

The vast experience of the Human Resources professionals with whom we’ve worked on this online course proved that interviewing the candidates in unexpected places or situations is a valuable way of testing their real skills and personality, more effective than the classical job interview that could never give such genuine, real and unexpected information about the candidates.

One of our collaborators, the HR Manager of an oil company, recounted us about a job interview she had once for the position of Human Resources Manager in a factory with 350 employees, mostly unskilled workers. She went to the interview at the appointed time but she had to wait for 2 hours to start the interview that took place in the workers’ locker.

At the end of the interview, the recruiters told her she was not the right person for the job, although she had dealt very well with the situation and had perfectly answered the questions they asked her.

And here comes the interesting part. Actually, she got the job but how she was managing the negative response was the final testRemember: The job interview or the testing is not finished when the candidate gets the so-called final result!

What was the purpose of that interview? The management was looking for a committed person, determined not to take a NO for granted, a person that doesn’t give up easily. There had been tested the candidate's strength of mind and ability to cope with difficult situations, to keep 350 men workers under control, to rein them in and make herself respected.

So, are you interested in finding more on how you can easily recruit the right persons no matter how difficult the job is and how you can always master the job interview? If your answer is yes, we can show you how.

You will know how to:

  • Recruit the right person for a specific job knowing what are the most relevant abilities, skills and competencies for that job
  • Define the requirements and the candidate profile for a certain job
  • Write an effective job ad and choose the most appropriate media channel to publish it
  • Easily get only the relevant information when you analyze the resumes
  • Prepare a successful interview step by step
  • Ask the right questions in order to get the most out of a job interview
  • Properly use the situational, the behavioural interview and the star technique
  • Use the under stress, the panel and the group interview
  • Effectively test the candidates
  • Present to candidates the special clauses of mobility, non-competition and confidentiality
    …and so much more

    I’ve already recommended this online course to all my friends and work colleagues. It’s a high-quality HR course and I loved the “Important to put in practice” tips that are very useful just as the rest of the information presented in the course. To be honest I discovered interviewing methods that I never thought existed and it’s true, with these methods you can really find out in 15 minutes more about a candidate than in an hour of using the old interviewing style.

    If I would have to be brief, I would say: Important insider secrets translated into common language for all of us. But I can’t be brief :) because I have to say that I’m genuinely impressed by what I found within this online course: powerful ideas and revealing insider secrets. I’ve never thought that I could feel so rewarded and have such an increased self-confidence level. Nice job, BigMainStreet!

    Excellent online course with a content wisely dosed for a person like me because I have an extremely busy schedule. I really enjoyed the real case studies and the practical knowledge with tips and tricks that I found useful to apply in my daily activities. Given that the time schedule is a relaxed one, I had enough time to actually enjoy my course.
