Mastering the Behavioral Interview… for Executives
Novato, Calif. (PRWEB) April 3, 2009
Hiring managers are increasingly adopting behavioral interview techniques because past behaviors predict future behaviors, and HR professionals learn more about a candidate's capabilities from a behavioral interview. Matt Gill, senior vice president for Pile & Company Executive Search and a behavioral interview trainer will explain how to differentiate yourself in an interview in the next session of Experts Connection (http://www.experts-connection.com), "Mastering the Behavioral Interview… for Executives" scheduled for April 22, from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. ET (1:00 - 2:00 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (http://www.netshare.com).
In this teleseminar, Gill will explain what a behavioral interview is and how to approach the interview from the interviewers' perspective. In this teleseminar, Gill will discuss:
- The characteristics behavioral interviews are designed to unveil at the executive level.
- How to prepare for a behavioral interview.
- How to identify when a behavioral interview is about to take place.
- How to guide someone (who is not a good interviewer) to collect the right information.
- Understanding the dynamics of a group behavioral interview.
- Understanding the resource list on behavioral interviewing - reading, research, and preparation.
"Interview techniques have evolved, and it's no longer enough to be able to talk about yourself and your skills, you need to demonstrate how you will be effective in a specific role and what makes you a good fit as a candidate," said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection teleseminars. "Matt has trained hundreds of HR professionals in effective behavioral interviewing and in this session of Experts Connection, you will get a rare opportunity to look at the interview from the hiring manager's side of the desk, understanding how they make staffing decisions based on key questions about your past job performance."
The Experts Connection teleseminar series gives executives access to leading career experts. The cost of the seminar is $50, $40 for NETSHARE members, and access is provided via web and telephone. For more information, visit the Experts Connection online at http://www.experts-connection.com.
