More Than a Gut Feeling III

More Than a Gut Feeling III teaches you to select the most qualified job candidate by applying the ever-popular behavioral approach to interviewing. This method, developed by industrial psychologist Dr. Paul Green, directs you to probe the job applicant for specific examples of their past. The reason is simple: The best predictor of a job applicant's future work behavior is their past work behavior. Viewers of More Than a Gut Feeling III will learn helpful job-related interviewing techniques practiced by so many hiring staffs all over the world. You can refrain from judging an applicant on gut feeling by: asking rapport-building questions; discussing the job; taking notes and explaining why; asking specific, open-ended questions to get specific answers; allowing for silence if necessary; maintaining control; getting contrary evidence and evaluating. This video applies these techniques to the most common interviewing situations and helps you to refrain from judging the candidate on intuition. SPECIAL FEATURE: Dr. Paul Green introduces the video with a personal message about his behavioral approach to interviewing and concludes the video with questions to think about the next time you interview a job candidate. Video synopsis: Two strangers, Ann and Will, strike up a conversation about interviewing practices while sitting next to each other on an airplane. Will has had previous problems hiring the "right" person because he doesn't know what questions to ask during an interview. Ann gives specific examples of how she uses behavioral-style interviewing to avoid making conclusions based on her gut feeling. Will follows Ann's techniques and successfully conducts his own interview!
