Course Overview

There are 3 key sections of this training course.

This section of the course covers all the advanced best practices like selection decisions.

The course explores the six following biases that can occur during the selection process:

  1. Expectancy.
  2. Primacy.
  3. Information seeking.
  4. Contrast or quota.
  5. Horns/Halo.
  6. Stereotyping.

And, highlights the four outcomes of the selection decision:

  1. Accept good performers.
  2. Reject poor performers.
  3. Accept poor performers.
  4. Reject good performers.

In practice, this section helps learners develop a deeper understanding of key areas, build more practical skills, and feel more connected to the area.

2. The recruitment and selection process
Recruitment initiatives help shape the success of organizations, they attract and select the right candidates, meet skills and performance gaps, and have an influence over all areas of a business. To illustrate, the three of the main functions of recruitment and selection programs are:

  1. Attract a pool of suitable candidates.
  2. Deter unsuitable candidates from applying.
  3. Create a positive image of the organization.

Next, the training provided explores the following simple eight-step recruitment process:

  1. Job analysis.
  2. Source candidates.
  3. The recruitment interview.
  4. Types of interview questions.
  5. Identifying skills.
  6. Psychometric testing.
  7. Reference checking.
  8. Making an offer.

The course explores the following advantages and disadvantages of a recruitment interview:

  • Quick and relatively easy to perform.
  • Perceived by the candidate as a natural part of the recruitment process.
  • Allows the organization to get to know a candidate.
  • Enable the candidate to find out more about the organization.


  • Open to errors
  • Challenging for the interviewer to discriminate between relevant and irrelevant information.
  • Different conclusions are dependent on the type of interview conducted.
  • Early impressions can negatively and inappropriately influence the interviewer’s judgment.

The ability to understand the advantages and disadvantages requires companies to understand how their recruitment initiatives arrive at the decisions they make. If they can’t, the recruitment and selection procedures can be considered “vulnerable,” meaning the outcomes could be questionable.

Learners will discover that a recruitment interview can help an organization deliver valuable information to potential staff, gain their trust, and build strong relationships with them into the future.

And, the training examines the three main functions of the recruitment interview:

  1. Mutual preview.
  2. Assessment.
  3. Negotiation.

Next, the training focuses on the six main types of interview questions:

  1. Direct or closed.
  2. Leading.
  3. Topic-changing.
  4. Probing and developing.
  5. Open-ended.
  6. Reflecting back.

3. How to measure recruitment and selection
Whether learners are experienced participants of recruitment and selection situations who want to get more out of what they do, or new to this field who’d like a “best in class” introduction, this course offers valuable learning opportunities for whatever participants are looking for.

This section focuses solely on measuring the effectiveness of all recruitment and selection efforts. Included are templates to get participants on track so they will know exactly how to measure recruitment and selection initiatives.
