Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course.

Skills – Your audience will demand useful and practical content. They will typically want content that will benefit them in their daily roles. So, identifying benefits is a must for any course. And, this is why you should start the session by exploring what exactly is an interview.

Next, use the content provided to discuss the main types of conversations that can occur within companies. As you move through the material, you can use the content to examine the different skills that are needed (e.g., questioning and listening skills).

Questioning and listening skills  – Whether you’re delivering this course to a large or small audience, you will need to spend time discussing active and reflective listening skills. And, we’ve learned that the key to meeting the needs of your audience is ensuring that you’re detailing various types of questioning skills. Do note that your audience won’t just want you to present content in a slide-by-slide fashion. Instead, they will actively seek examples and experiences from you.

In this section, we would encourage you to share your own experiences of interviews. Sharing your experiences will make it easy for the audience to see the value; it will ground the course and also help to make it more engaging.

The recruitment interview – Essentially, the recruitment interview is what springs to the minds of most of your audience when they think about interviews. And, naturally, you will want to explore the recruitment interview in greater detail. If possible, we suggest that you include company or industry-specific examples to what we’ve provided. Your audience will want answers to questions in their environment, and examples will encourage more audience engagement. In particular, you can use the content provided to discuss the effectiveness of a recruitment interview from the perspectives of both the interviewer and the candidate.

The grievance – discipline interview – One common misconception is that a lot of people will see the focus of an interviewing skills course to be only in the area of recruitment. However, the grievance and discipline interview is of such considerable importance within a company that deserves particular attention. In fact, by following the content in this section, your audience will quickly learn that there are shared skills across various interviewing settings.

Handling poor performance – Lots of people learn to be successful at recruitment interviews, but still struggle in interview settings that involve performance appraisal skills. Use the content provided to focus on how interviews can handle poor performance. Areas include:

  • Goal setting
  • Training
  • Dissatisfactions
  • Discipline
  • Reorganizing
  • Management
  • Outside agencies
  • The job
