Proof of the Effectiveness of Behavior-Based Interviews mixed with traditional questions.

**Salgado, J. F. (1997) Personnel Selection Methods' in C. L. Cooper and I. T. Robinson, International Review of Industrial and Organizational Psychology. New York: Wiley.

 

Q: What's the theory why this form of  interviewing is so effective.........?

Interview Creator Online is based on the theory of Behavioral Interviewing now used by over 70% of Fortune 500 companies.

Extensive research supports behavioral interviewing (using past performance as a reliable indicator of future performance) as the most effective interviewing technique available to evaluate suitable applicants.

And it makes common sense!



What is it that Mothers and friends always say: 

''When you choose your husband/wife...you BETTER love 
him/her as s/he is now.........  Because he or she isn't  
going to change, and neither are you.' 

And it is true!

For the most part, people don't change their behavior from year to year. 

For example, if a person is meticulous about keeping their desk tidy and all their correspondence up-to-date, it's almost certain that person will display that very same trait this time next year.

And if a person is notorious for always showing up late.........no-one is shocked if the same person is always late in his new job also.

And that's the key behind Behavioral interviewing

Behavior-based interviewing is a standard interviewing approach that looks at PAST behavior as the best predictor of FUTURE performance.

The goal of any selection interview is to learn enough about a candidate to be able to predict future-on-the-job performance and behavior. That information can then be used to make an informed hiring decision or recommendation.

As we have said, behavioral interviewing is a technique based on the idea that candidates' past and present behavior is the best predictor of how they will behave in the future. 

But behavioral traits don't appear on a resume — they can only come from an interview. Furthermore, interviewers need to obtain repeated examples of behavior to confirm they really exist.

Interviews not based on behavioral interviewing techniques inevitably focus exclusively on education, experience, and knowledge — exactly the information that's already on the resume. 

While these are clearly important, they only reveal what a candidate actually did. Behavioral interviewing helps get at the "how" and "why" behind a candidate's performance.

Competency-based behavioral interviewing uses "competencies" to describe behavioral qualities. Examples include analytical, problem solver, team player and customer-oriented. Behavioral competencies should be used to describe job requirements ("must be articulate, adaptable, committed," and so on) before the interview as well as to evaluate candidates after an interview.

When competency-based behavioral interviewing forms the framework for the entire hiring system, interviewers are able to make much more effective hiring decisions.

 

Q: I've heard Research has shown that Behavioral-based Interviewing is more than  70% as effective as traditional old style Questioning at predicting how  candidates are likely to perform in the future. Is this true?*

Yes. Put it this way: 

Ask your candidate 10 traditional, old style questions - and you'll get a decent understanding of your candidate. 

However: Ask her 10 professionally-created Behavioral-based 
Questions - and you'll get a completely different INSIGHT 
and VIEW of this candidate. 

The view you'll get when you've worked with her for at 
least 6 months

When........ all  real behavioral patterns are revealed.

Warts and all. But, by then it'll be too late. 

Interview Creator allows you to create powerful insightful
interviews that take the best from both Traditional Questions and Behavioral-based Questions - and hire right- first time.

Q: Tell me about your company?

Interview Creator
was first created in 2001 in software format.

Sean O Riain, a founding Director was then running a successful sales organization and found that the use of behavioral interviewing was improving his effective hire rate substantially.

While wanting to use behavioral interview for all positions, it was extremely costly employing consultants to create the interviews for  positions which needed different competences and for changing competencies for each job as the organization progressed.

Hence the idea for a software program which would cover most competencies with professionally-crafted behavioral type Questions and output the data in professional easy-to-use interview sheets and guides.

So with the help of P.J. Collins, who had over 10 years experience as a qualified behavioral consultant, the process began.

After about 18 months of hard work with our team of  graduate writers and talented coders, Interview Creator came on the market.

In 2006, it was decided to make our product available online, as this would enable us to update the content daily and make it easier for users to use.

In Dec 2006, Interview Creator Online was online. Interview Creator  is owned by Brandon Communications Ltd.
