On-Demand Hunting for Unicorns
Sound good? Sure does. Now, how do we find these unicorns?
Unfortunately, all we have to go on is our pre-employment process. If your applicants are not meeting your needs coming in the door, then look at the process that brought them there. The battery of tests that your agency uses to screen candidates needs to be optimized to elicit as much information as possible, focused on the attributes and skills your agency's culture values or is looking to develop.
This presentation will look at various ways to adapt and improve the interview process. What kind of questions should you ask? Should you use a written assessment or physical test? Will the scenario be simulation, live actor, or tabletop? Can you interview a distance applicant? No process is perfect, but come figure out what you should look for to get the most out of your screening.
