Prerequisite: Completion of Interviewing & Hiring: Part 1 is Required
This workshop is focused on developing various types of interview questions. It is not a lecture and will not cover the interview process.

Building on knowledge from Interviewing Part 1 (a prerequisite course), this hands-on workshop uses your company’s real world job descriptions to build a library of appropriate interview questions based on the required knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) for performance.  This course is appropriate for human resource personnel, recruiters, and company employees who interview skilled tradecraft, office workers, project managers or union hall members interviewing to fill positions or apprentice program selection. Participants must bring a list of questions currently being used during interviewing, and the characteristics and competencies of their really good performers.  A competency list is in the materials from Interviewing Part 1.  For examples of tasks and knowledge skills for electricians, plumbers, helpers, etc., visit www.onetonline.org
Required Pre-Work
