Educate your Hiring Managers on These 6 Topics to Bring in Best Interns
Recruiters are just as important to the hiring process as hiring managers, if not more so. Often, they are the ones who create a new job and make the final decision about who to hire. But it's critical that they understand how to interview well and with little bias, so hiring managers must have the knowledge of a few critical hiring aspects.
More than simply interviewing capacity building is needed for hiring managers. Please don't misunderstand. If you want to interview someone, you need to know how to do it well. In addition, they should have a better understanding of the entire recruiting process. Managers require training in the art of recruiting.
To that end, here is a list of six things that recruiters need to know. These interviewing skills could be taught as part of the company's current professional development schedule or in one-on-one sessions for the purpose of hiring.
Interview skills play an important part in the hiring process.
Management often has to evaluate candidates without having a complete grasp of the full recruitment process - from marketing to recruiting to filtering to shortlisting. The interview is just the beginning of the process. Hire managers can do better interviews and make better decisions about whom to hire if they are aware of interviewing essentials.
Go through the job requirements.
Most of the time, it is important for hiring managers to make sure that the job description they give to candidates matches the one given by HR. This might be a good opportunity for HR and hiring departments to work together.
Understanding the laws governing the workplace.
Hiring managers should be familiar with the legalities of the topics they'll be discussing, as well as how to take appropriate notes. Handwritten notes may still be important, even if a firm has an exceptional recruitment technology solution. State and country-specific legal information may differ. In addition, it might differ by industry. Then there's one more thing, hiring managers should know how to effectively offer a position. If they don't do it every day, they should have a basic understanding.
The costs and consequences of employing.
It's not inexpensive to hire a new employee. Everyone in the firm is affected by a terrible hiring. Managers should be aware of the expenditures involved. I previously worked for a firm where managers were required to determine the cost of each new recruit before we even began discussing interviews or other aspects of the hiring process (Cost Per Hire). After that, we spoke about what CPH may be used for (i.e., tools, appraisals, incentives, etc.), that laid the groundwork for the rest of our process.
Choosing the right applicant for the job.
The selecting phase of the recruitment process, in my opinion, is usually hurried. Only a few minutes are spent on selection after a long process of sourcing, screening, and interviewing. Great if that's all the time you need. But self-awareness and unbiased interview training should be given to hiring supervisors.
They must be able to objectively assess a candidate's abilities and credentials.
Managers have a huge responsibility when it comes to recruiting new employees. The other aspects of their work (planning, organising, leading, and controlling) will not go smoothly if they don't perform it well. We need managers who can interview, but also those who can comprehend the hiring process. That means that the organisation will have a higher chance of finding the right people to assist it reach its goals.
