Interviewing For Success

Selecting a new employee from an applicant pool can be a challenging task for new and experienced supervisors. Making that important choice requires an understanding of the requirements of the open position and the ability to determine a candidate’s capability to perform job responsibilities successfully.

This 3.5-hour workshop focuses on specific interviewing tips and techniques that will enhance the interviewer’s ability to make sound hiring decisions.

Instruction includes brief lectures, group discussions, and skills-practices based on actual job openings.

Participants will learn how:

  • Identify three distinct stages of every interview—planning, conducting, and evaluating
  • Review job analysis tools—how to analyze job openings in terms of identifying critical tasks, skills and abilities
  • Practice question development—how to create and use interview questions (e.g., open, closed, probing, competency-based)
  • Identify communication tips for keeping the interview on track
  • Create an action plan for the next interview

Participant benefits include:

  • An interview framework that can be applied to any job opening
  • Competency-based questions that relate specifically to an open position
  • Checklists for each phase of the interview: beginning, middle, and close


The length of each training engagement will depend on the need and number of trainees and the strategic objectives of the client.


Operation A.B.L.E. will develop a training proposal based on the specific requirements of the organization and the trainees.
