“The concept of behavior-based interviewing has been around for some time now, but nowhere are the art and technique developed as well as here. Finally, an entire text is dedicated to the critical task of framing interviewing questions around candidates’ real-life experiences—questions that will prompt factual answers, and focus on future competencies and abilities.” — From the foreword by Paul Falcone, author of 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire
What if you could accurately project how people will perform in new jobs? What if you had a proven system for locating dream candidates among pools of qualified applicants?
High-Impact Interview Questions gives you 701 ready-to-use questions that uncover the real person behind the résumé. Behavior-based interviewing goes deeper than traditional “How do you manage stress?” questions. Instead, the questions link directly to past behaviors—the best indicators of future performance-—as in: “Tell me about a time you had to perform a task under a lot of stress.”
Not only does High-Impact Interview Questions shift the questioning to real-life events—the book also helps you focus on candidates’ skills, knowledge, and abilities. Simply locate the competencies required for the job—choosing among 88 in total—including accountability, assertiveness, attention to detail, judgment, follow-through, risk-taking, and social media usage; then use sample questions from each category, clarify the answers, evaluate “fit,” and score the candidates. Done!
Landing a great employee takes more than a hunch. When you ask the right questions, you’ll find the best people.
Victoria A. Hoevemeyer is an OD expert who has helped many organizations transition from traditional to behavior-based interviewing. She currently serves as director of talent development at Lexington Health Network.
