Of all the decisions business owners make, none impacts the effectiveness of their business more profoundly than hiring. Understanding how to interview a potential employee and hire for the right fit is necessary for any small business owner. This course will teach you how to develop your structured interviewing techniques, help you to differentiate between behaviors and traits, and show you how to write effective behavioral-based questions so that you can prepare to ask the right questions when interviewing a potential employee. This class also looks at the legal environment of hiring and will help you to create a defendable hiring process.
