Introduction

Note: Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented, beginning with Assessment 1.

Organizations may have differing plans for hiring outside applicants, but they often follow a common pattern when screening those candidates.

The most common applicant screening process looks something like this:

  • Review of resumes/applications for basic qualifications.
  • A phone interview (generally with HR).
  • A screening interview with HR that may involve some initial testing, reference checking, or background screening.
  • A department interview with more in-depth testing and background checking.
  • Additional interviews with other stakeholders.
  • A decision process.
  • Offer made to selected candidate.

Scenario

In Assessment 4, you developed a job analysis for CapraTek’s regional sales representative positions. Based on that job analysis, you will interview candidates.

  • 4 structured interview questions.
  • 3 semi-structured interview questions.

  • 2 situational interview questions.

In addition, include the following:

  • Identify which question types relate to the knowledge, skills, and abilities and required experiences for CapraTek’s position.
