Effective Interviewing is a powerful and proven skill that enables hiring managers to hire right people. Hiring is the most important decision most managers make, but interviewing and selecting candidates are often neglected skills. In these competitive times, no one has the luxury of making a bad hiring decision. Hiring the right candidates can put your company ahead of the competition, reduce the high cost of turnover and discrimination claims.

Effective interviewing skills are important for hiring managers in any size business, particularly in small and medium businesses since the working relationships can be closer and more cohesive than in large organizations. Therefore, it's crucial for hiring managers to develop interviewing skills that lead to wise hiring decisions.

If you have a tough question, or need advice, you often look to internal “experts” within your organization. If you have a question about taxes, you probably know just the person to go to within your accounting department; if you need some advice on local trade shows and events -- your marketing manager may be just the person you need to see. While all of these people are experts in their own areas, they are also tasked with hiring folks to fill the seats in their departments. Often times, we think that because we have the best IT manager around, that of course he will be able to hire the best IT people for his team. This may not be the case. These “experts” have special talents and training in their fields but when it comes to finding the right people to fill positions, they may need some “expert” advice of their own.

It is important that we equip our hiring managers, supervisors and HR representatives with the right “Interviewing skills” training and tools in order to support them in finding the best people to fill open positions.
