How to Pick the Right People
Campus Recruitment Program Workshop

Those who conduct campus interviews are faced with a unique set of challenges: to gain as much relevant, crucial data as possible in a short span of time, to balance the need to evaluate with the need to “sell” their organization to top candidates, and to generate useful and meaningful write-ups.

Two Day Program

Our most popular format is the full standard two-day program.  It is designed to provide the greatest opportunity for skill mastery.  It follows an orderly, logical and building-block process of incremental practice followed by integrative practice.   On the first day, each topic is presented and discussed in detail, and each inidividual skill is practiced separately.  In the morning of the second day, each participant has the opportunity to integrate all the individual skills by conducting a complete interview and observing two others.  This integrative practice is invaluable in helping participants internalize and perfect their interview, and can put the skills and tools to use most easily the very next day.  The afternoon of the second day covers decisionmaking strategies, documentation and legal issues.

One Day Program

Of course, there may be times when your managers are available only for one day, or your budget is especially limited, so we have developed an intense, skill building, one-day version of our program.  No topics are omitted, but are covered more briefly, and most individual skills practice exercises are preserved.  The integrative practice is omitted of necessity, yet participants get the essential tools and skills they need.

The Briefing Session

For clients that want to give a recruiting team or a group of Senior Managers a quick summary and overview of the issues, the Briefing Session is an option.  The minimum length is two hours, and in a three-hour format we can include the opportunity to try out the recommended campus interview structure that managers seem to value and use on campus.  This is not offered as a skill building session but rather as an intense summary of the essential issues of the hiring process.
