Course recruitment and selection: decreasing interviews

Of course someone puts his best foot forward during a job interview. But how do you find out if the applicant is actually suitable for the job? And how do you select the most suitable person at all? Making a good decision after a job interview is an important, but often difficult task. However, it can be a lot of time and money if you make the right choice. That is why it is of course important to get as much relevant information as possible on the candidate's suitability during the interview. You want to find out whether the candidate has the desired expertise, skills and talents, but preferably also what his personal goals and motives are. The job interview offers excellent opportunities that you can learn to use well.

During our two-day training Recruitment and selection process, you can get started with questioning techniques and learn how to interpret non-verbal signals. You learn to initiate, send and limit a conversation. In addition, the naming and discussion of doubts about shortcomings are discussed. Together with the other participants, you are going to practise different conversation situations. You discover that your conversational skills by exercising and feedback from the trainer take a positive turn.

Had a good refresher course with some useful tips and tricks that I will definitely take with me in the conversations that I will have from now on"! - Review: 8.8

J. Bastian, ScaleX B.V. - Recruitment and selection: interviews

"Recruitment training is highly recommended. The STAR method teaches you to get a lot more information out of your applicant that he would not normally give because applicants often answer standard questions that you would also like to hear. The trick is to present situations to him and ask him about them, which will give you a much more honest picture of your applicant. Great tips and tricks." - Rating: 10.0

E. Rose, Pilar Games - Conversation techniques

"The training was good and varied. The alternation of theory with practical, realistic exercises was so well attuned to each other that there were no boring moments and it remained constantly fascinating. The training was given by a professional instructor who was not pedantic after all and who also dared to be vulnerable, without losing leadership. She gave very constructive criticism which kept the motivation good. Very good is the use of audio support, models and game situations. All in all the training is very good to become aware of what you are doing in conversations and what you could develop or change. You quickly become aware of your strengths and weaknesses." - Assessment: 8.4

J. Roosenboom, Ministry of Economic Affairs (EZ) - Conversation techniques

"The training is absolutely recommended. In advance you can pass on your learning goals during a short telephone contact with the trainer. All your goals will then be addressed. The trainer teaches in a very fun way, structure without being imposed too much. Input from participants is highly appreciated. Presenting in front of the camera seems scary at first, but it is very instructive and in the end very fun. Besides being very instructive and easy to apply, I also found the days very enjoyable. Too bad it's over. Luckily I still have my teaching materials with notes and the important things are still in my head". - Assessment: 8.4
