Are Behavioral Interviews Still Relevant?

Everyone knows most fads come and go, but every once in a while, a fad catches gold and are still relevant all these years later. So where do behavioral interviews fall in the industry? Are they more like a Furby or more like Chuck Taylor sneakers? Behavioral interviews — where hiring managers ask questions of job candidates that elicit insight into how they may act in certain situations — are much more common today than 10 years ago. But much like any interview method, it can lose its effectiveness as candidates learn to work around it.

Jason Berkowtiz, VP of Client Services for Seven Step RPO, offers his insights on the current status of behavioral intervivews in an article in Talent Management Magazine, titled “Are Behavioral Interviews Still Relevant?”

“The best behavioral interview questions are going to ask somebody about a time that they had to do a task that is required for the role they’re in,” said Jason Berkowitz, vice president of client services at Seven Step RPO, a recruitment outsourcing firm. “If you’re hiring a writer, ask them about a time they had to produce a lot of content on a tight deadline.

If this is happening to you, you need to pay more attention to training your hiring managers on how to sell the position to candidates.

Does it sound like I’ve got it vice-versa? Shouldn’t the candidate be the one worried about impressing the hiring manager?

How to Start a Candidate Community that Attracts Top Talent

So, a talented potential employee visits your career site. They may or may not apply. If they don’t apply, how do you get them to return? Recruitment today is all about courting candidates by building long-term relationships with them. And if you’re not providing these candidates with a community to join, you are losing a chance to engage them and possibly drive them to your competitors. Now is the time to create a community that attracts top talent.

How can your company start a candidate community? When someone visits your career site, they will be invited to sign up by name and email to receive further communication from your company. This lets you track potentially interested candidates and provides them the opportunity to learn more about your company. It is your chance to keep your employment brand in front of candidates with the intention that when they are ready, they will apply to a job....  read more

Is Social Media Recruiting Dead?

A year ago, reports revealed that only 2 percent of large brands' Facebook posts were reaching their fans, and one Forrester analyst lamented the death of social media's organic reach. But does the same hold true for social media recruiting?
