Recruitment & Selection Techniques: Hiring the Right People

The purpose of recruitment interviews is to find the best match candidate. However, general questions illicit general answers. Close-ended questions illicit model answers. Just how can an interviewer apply tried and tested questioning techniques to obtain relevant evidence from the candidate within one hour of an interview?

In addition, participants will also be familiarised with the Tripartite Guidelines on Fair Employment Practices in order to understand what constitute discriminating practices of recruitment.

Recruitment interviewers should sign up for this course to maximise the chance of finding the best match for the job. Finding the best match means adding an asset to the team, instead of a liability.


Words from the Trainer: "Whether is it a tight labour market or not, a company needs to recruit based on established criteria in order to find the best match candidate, and know where to guide the new hire to perform adequately during the probationary period.  When this process is carried out purposefully, a company might just have found the perfect fit!"

After the workshop, you will be able to:

  • apply the Tripartite Guidelines on Fair Employment practices
  • determine the competencies of a job
  • distinguish the difference between competency, behavioural and scenario-based questions
  • design the right questions to ask
  • deploy further probe questions to get specific answers from the candidate
  • assess candidate’s suitability objectively
