Job interviews for both the employer and the hiring candidate can be a stressful and time-consuming activity. A recent CareerBuilder survey reported that three out of four employers stated that they had hired the wrong person for a position. This wrong hire comes with a cost. On average, companies spend $14,900.00 annually for every mismatched hire. This webinar will discuss the essential two areas of proficiency to consider when looking at career changes and hiring protocol. The first part of the discussion talks about technical skills assessment. This discussion includes current research and possible ways to enhance the hiring process. The second area, which will be the emphasis of the webinar, is on soft skills. Soft skills are especially relevant to our changing times. These are the behavioral aspects of the job. Soft skills include communication, critical thinking skills, and personality fit. If time permits, participants will be encouraged to share in the discussion.
