EdRecruit: Building Great Interview Questions

Event Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Time: 12:00 – 2:00 PM EST


A first step to making great hiring decisions is writing effective interview questions. Effective questions are constructed in a way that elicit job-related information from candidates and minimizes bias in decision-making. Learn the key steps in constructing interview questions that help you identify the most suitable candidates for your positions.

After participating in the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of behavioural interviewing and appreciate why its use is considered to be “best-practice”
  • Identify knowledge, skills and attitudes that are required in the job and how to transform these into measurable selection criteria to guide your process
  • Identify tools to help you elicit consistent information from all candidates and minimize barriers to effective decision-making

Participants will receive our eBook, which will include checklists, resources and tools to support you in building great interview questions.

Who should attend:

Staff with responsibility for hiring and those who sit on interview committees in a school board setting including human resource staff, principals and vice-principals.
