Spokane, Wash. – Demand for a workshop focused on behavioral interviewing at WorkSource Spokane is on the rise as employers are gearing up to increase hiring. The three-hour workshop, which is provided at no cost to local employers, is held monthly at WorkSource and can also be delivered on-site at employer facilities.
Behavioral interviewing is a method for conducting interviews based on the premise that past behavior predicts future behavior, and the best way to assess the likelihood of success for a job candidate is to solicit examples of past job performance and evaluate these examples in light of the requirements for the job.
The process of behavioral interviewing was first developed about 30 years ago by a number of industrial psychologists, including Paul Green, PhD, upon whose work this workshop is largely based. Although this method is in wide use among larger organizations with extensive human resource departments, many smaller and mid-sized companies that would also benefit have not been exposed to it.
Since first bringing this workshop to Spokane a couple of years ago, hundreds of hiring managers and supervisors have been trained. To find out more about attending the workshop or having the training at your company, contact Jack Kaplan, (509) 532-3061 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WorkSource Spokane is a partnership of the Spokane Area Workforce Development Council, Washington state Employment Security Department, other state and local agencies and nonprofit organizations that work together to provide employment and training services to job seekers and employers.
