Did you know that hiring the right person is an agency’s best opportunity to assemble a workforce that can meet mission requirements and effectively operate in concert with the rest of the government workforce? Yet too many times interviewing and reference checking is looked at as a pro forma part of the process. That all changes now.
Join Barbara Haga for a discussion on how to make the most out of interviewing and checking references, from crafting an accurate position description to asking the right questions to assessing a candidate’s ability to perform the job.
She’ll also cover topics including:
- Selection panels
- Behavior-based questioning
- Illegal questions
The session will conclude with tips on making reference checks worth your while instead of a “check the box” item that yields no helpful information. Whether you’re in HR or are a supervisor who is looking to hire someone, you’ll want to be sure to make plans to join us.
