Upskilling Workshop on

Interviewing Skills

Friday, 24th May 2024; 09:00 am to 05:00 pm at

JM Four Hotel, Shivajinagar, Pune: 411004.


Having the right people in the right jobs is essential. That means hiring needs to be right – which depends critically on interviewing skills. It’s also too easy to hire on a subjective impression – you just like the person – and find out later they lack the skills, knowledge or temperament for the job.

On this highly interactive and practical workshop, participants will learn how to use a competency-based approach based on the job description. They will discover the importance of diversity and being aware of common errors that adversely affect the hiring decision. The participants will also learn how to present the company to candidates in a way that leaves them positive about the organisation.


Post workshop, participants are expected to:

  1. Know what to look for in Candidate Resume / Job Application Form
  2. Learn how to prepare for interviewing candidates
  3. Know different types of questions they need to ask to determine competence
  4. Recognize the pattern of behavioural questions and use this pattern to design job-specific, behavioural and performance-based questions
  5. Learn to document the interactions and make appropriate selection choices
