Description - The Evaluation Interview by Richard A. Fear

When first published over 30 years ago, The Evaluation Interview gained immediate recognition as one of the best books on the subject of interviewing. Since then it has become widely acknowledged as the essential reference for hiring managers and personnel interviewers. The American Society for Personnel Administration named the second edition the "outstanding human resource management book" of 1978. The book features practical techniques on how to get an interviewee to loosen up and feel at ease; assess an applicant's work history, education, social adjustment, and motivation; probe deeply for clues to behavior; get candid answers to interview questions from job candidates who may have something to hide; stay in control of the interview. This fifth edition of The Evaluation Interview contains approximately 30 percent new material with substantial new chapters addressing: behavioral interviewing tactics that leave no wiggle room; legal issues: questions you cannot ask; evaluating technical ability in an interview; evaluating candidates for overall "fit" with the organization's needs and culture; the 10 most common mistakes interviewers make.
