Perfect the process

To build the strongest team for your business, you need the right person for each and every job. By learning how to prepare and conduct a thorough interview, you can ensure you are hiring the best fit for the role and the company.

Improve your technique

Finding the right person for the job can be a challenging task and can cost a lot of valuable company time. Create your own business-specific approach and start every interview prepared with the right techniques and the most valuable questions.

Advanced Interviewing Skills

Over 90% of hiring managers have had no formal training on how to prepare, conduct and lead an interview, yet we expect them to recruit the top talent. From writing the perfect job description and screening resumes, to reference checking and orientation, our one day workshop will give you the skills you need to fine-tune your interviewing process.

Altered State are experts in the field of recruitment; we can show you how to effectively prepare for every interview, with a focus on behavioural, attitudinal and competency-based interviewing techniques, as well as pre and post-interview best practice. Learn about the K.A.S.H and S.T.A.R.T models and how they can enhance the whole recruitment experience for both you and your candidates.

Each workshop is tailored to your organisation’s needs; participants will use position descriptions for roles they recruit for to develop focussed and relevant interview questions. Together we will establish a consistent and robust hiring process, specific to your company.

Key Objectives

• Understand organisational expectations

• Follow recruitment laws

Emotional Intelligence is how somebody manages their personality to be both personally and interpersonally effective. It means having positive self-regard, being self-aware and managing your behaviour effectively, as well as possessing a positive regard for others and managing your relationships effectively.

“I am really pleased with how you engaged the team, I believe the way you pitched the workshop was brilliant and as discussed I am really keen to revisit this because I believe we have set a platform to implement, monitor & systemise planning activities, which I am very hopeful over a period of time will show up a lot of opportunities to increase efficiency”.

Greg Stuart, Regional Manager, Competenz
