While Oregon and Southwest Washington economies have endured huge recessionary turmoil, signs are beginning to indicate that it is time to think future, not past. Business owners and HR professionals now need to think longer term, with an emphasis on hiring the right individuals as they lay out a roadmap for ongoing success. With so many people looking for work, the question becomes, "How do I make the right choice or choices?" This seminar is designed to help you do just that!
Too often, well-intentioned interviewers believe that asking the right questions will lead to hearing or not hearing the right answers. This seminar is designed to focus on both the questions and the answers. If you’ve ever thought you made the perfect hire only to be led astray, this seminar is for you.
* Improve your own interviewing communication skills
