Moreover, it will help you to address the common mistakes that most hiring managers commit, such as conducting an unstructured interview or the contrast error pitfall.
The training methodology will be a balanced use of mini-lectures, case studies, role plays, and group discussions. Participants will have the opportunity to prepare and perform interviews using realistic scenarios.
