OpenView's New Guide to Interviewing

Executives who read and implement the processes outlined in this eBook will be able to help their company better organize its hiring process and ensure their team is qualifying candidates properly.

(PRWEB) March 12, 2014

OpenView Venture Partners, an expansion-stage venture capital firm focused on providing its technology companies with deep operational support, announced today the release of a new eBook entitled, “The Savvy Interviewer’s Guide: How to Conduct Successful Interviews and Improve Hiring Effectiveness.” With its latest eBook, the firm addresses one of the greatest challenges that entrepreneurs face when building and scaling their businesses: hiring top talent.

“Being able to consistently hire the right people is essential for business growth,” says Diana Martz, OpenView’s Director of Talent. “For expansion-stage companies in particular, each hire is critical, and making bad hires is a mistake they cannot afford. Between lost productivity, lower morale, and high replacement costs, the impact of even just one mis-hire can be significant.”

OpenView’s new eBook explains how to plan and execute a constructive interview process, assemble the right interview team, ask questions to properly vet candidates, and manage feedback following interviews. In addition, the eBook outlines the:

  •     Key roles and responsibilities for a well-managed interview process
  •     Three primary types of interviews and when and how to use each
  •     Steps to follow for a more efficient and high-impact interview process
“We believe the executives who read and implement the processes outlined in this eBook will be able to help their company better organize its hiring process and ensure their team is qualifying candidates properly from the first point of engagement through the final step of delivering an offer,” says Martz. “Ultimately, this process will improve their probability of hiring the right people in the right roles, which will allow them to derive numerous benefits, including higher productivity and company morale, and lower employee turnover.”

The new eBook is a companion to OpenView’s comprehensive guide to recruiting published last year, entitled “Get More Talent! How to Build the Talent Factory Your Company Needs to Scale.”

OpenView’s eBooks support its mission of building great companies by providing expansion-stage companies with the operationally oriented tools and support they need to succeed. The firm’s recent eBooks span a variety of topics, including content marketing, customer segmentation, sales forecasts, competitive messaging, and operating reviews.
