How do we “herd the cats” to achieve success in the interview beyond unstructured interviewing to ensure best practices? Do we need to perform some “verbal Ju-Jitsu” to help interviewers, whether experienced or not, understand importance of the interview to effective employee selection, while minimizing the risk of EEO litigation? If you have ever tried to advocate, train for, or highlight the benefits of, for example, a structured behavioral interview, you may be privy to the nay-saying, eye-rolling, and heavy sighs expressed by experienced interviewers who do not buy-in to the fact that they should refine “how they have always done it.” Such resistance is certainly not universal, but it can be contagious when even a small number of intransigent veteran interviewers provide resistance to change regarding how to interview. Confronting, or preempting, such resistance can significantly enhance the quality of an employment interviewing initiative.
The objective of this session will be to address employment interview best practices in the context of practitioners who are, for one reason or another, resistant to these practices. Guided by focusing on the interviewer, the interviewee, the interview itself, and tracking the interview, a framework will guide discussion to identify how we can establish buy-in and better articulate, educate, and train for interview best practices. Ultimately, we will attempt to guide our way through critical topics surrounding interviewing to identify Must Dos, Desirables, and If Possibles to provide individual’s tools to walk away with to herd the cats and perform verbal ju-jitsu in numerous areas regarding interview best practices!
