Screening and interviewing candidates is tricky business. Assessing hard skills is challenging enough. Add to that the nuance of what it takes to succeed in that role, in your company, in your market, with that’s a whole new ballgame.

In this webinar you'll hear practical strategies for powerful interviewing. The presenters will discuss how to assess not just hard skills and experience, but fit. They will talk about soft-skills and behavioral interviewing techniques. In short, you'll leave with the tools and information you need to substantially up your interviewing game, and to get your managers to do the same.
