May Webinar: Looking at the Past to Predict the Future — Using Behavioral Interviewing to Find the Right Candidate Match
Date: May 30, 2012
Time: 10:00 am PDT / 12:00 pm CDT / 1:00 pm EDT
Presenter: Jake Shimansky, Director of Physician Recruitment, Home Physicians
Cost: Members/Free; Non-members/$99
1.5 hours CE credit
Most typical interviews do not tell the true story about how a candidate will perform in a job. Studies have shown that the best way to predict how a physician will conduct themselves in a new position is by exploring their past behaviors. Proper behavioral interviewing can help you fully assess how candidates will react in certain situations and can help you focus your questions on the behaviors that matter most to you. We will discuss what type of questions to ask, redirecting candidates, follow-up questions and analysis.
