Effective Interviewing Procedures

Length (hours): 2

The interview is one of the primary tools available during the hiring process to determine if applicants have the knowledge, skills, abilities and experience for the job.  If not conducted effectively, the decision process is more difficult, you may not hire the best qualified applicant and you could experience legal challenges.  This workshop will explore proper interview preparation, as well as how to conduct an effective interview. Particular emphasis will be focused on structuring proper interview questions that will avoid claims of discrimination against any of the protected classes, and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amended. ETSU PPP-35, Search Guidelines for Filling Faculty, Administrative and Clerical/Support Vacancies, is the reference for this class.
