Hiring mistakes can cost money – lots of money. In fact, it can cost as much as one-and-a-half times the salary of “bad hires” to replace them. Inadequate evaluation of critical skills cost millions of dollars each year because objective job data have not been collected.
Learning what makes a person qualified to work for you is difficult, especially when you have just a half-hour interview with them in a conference room.
Because of this time constraint, you might feel compelled to haste through the candidate's resume, asking the candidates questions about each job title and highlighted point they've written down from top to bottom.But if you want to know what makes the applicant valuable to you, it's important to get to know them beyond their RESUME. The best way to uncover this value is to ask Behavioral Interview questions.
Using Behavioral-based questions in an interview is one way employers like to try and find the right fit for their job. Behavioral Questions ask for specific examples from a candidate about his/her past behavior on the job
Interviews can be easily manipulated. For Example. There are some candidates who are better interviewees than the managers who try to interview them. As a result, sometimes hiring mistakes can be made that are costly and difficult to correct. This information helps those responsible for interviewing understand how to look for behaviors linked to successful job performance.
This topic also helps interviewers understand how to score interviews so that they may be used over time to compare job applicants.
