It's Your Choice - CDROM

Selection skills for managers

Media Type - Interactive CD-ROM

A selection interview is a bit like detective work. Suspects must be eliminated until the right person is found, whether from inside or outside the organisation. Making the right selection choice means knowing the budget was spent well, a valuable asset has been acquired and that colleagues will be motivated by the new team member.

It's your choice shows that too many people get the costly decision wrong, introducing three managers who make common mistakes. It then shows the viewer how each manager learns from these mistakes.

Ethelred the Unready
is unprepared, knows little about the job or the candidate, and is constantly interrupted by colleagues as the interview progresses. It is not until he is more organised and professional that he is able to make the best choice.

Ivan the Terrible would rather trumpet his own opinions than encourage the candidate to talk. He eventually learns about asking open questions and listening to what the candidate has to say.

Gillian the Silent allows the candidate to take over. She fails to probe or voice her doubts, and realises she has to be more affirmative and specific to gain the information she needs.

It also includes the Interviewee preparation programme, which teaches job candidates how to research a company and question interviewers to find out the things that matter to them. This is suitable for internal candidates, as well as for schools and colleges to prepare graduates for the job market.

The key outcomes:

  • Prepare and conduct effective selection interviews with confidence and skill
  • Candidates will be suitably prepared for all aspects of a job interview
