A “speeddate” day is occasionally held, which involves each Managing Consultant and Manager meeting all the invited candidates for 15 minutes. This allows the Managing Consultants and Managers to have an idea of all candidates in a shorter period of time in comparison to having regular interview sessions. The “speeddate” day cannot be held frequently because it is difficult to find 5-10 candidates that are available at the same day and time for an interview. This approach can be considered as an efficient way of recruiting candidates, because Managing Consultants and Managers work together on this by asking predetermined competency based questions and can all share their impressions to come to a better judgement after the interview sessions.
This approach involves a 5-step process, as displayed below.
Figure 5.4: PRC 5-Step Process
Source: PageGroup Intern
Before May 2014, there was no clear 5-step process. When a PRC had an interview with a consultant, other interested consultants also took the opportunity to meet the PRC. It frequently happened that the same types of questions were asked during all the interviews. (Within PageGroup, you have different divisions. It frequently occurs that various divisions are simultaneously looking for a PRC because one internal position has to be filled or added. After the interview, consultants of different divisions try to come to an agreement and decide who should take the PRC). This proved to be a very inefficient and ineffective way of recruiting new PRC’s, because there was no clear structure. For this reason, the 5-step process had been implemented in August/September 2014 to improve the recruitment process and avoid multiple consultants meeting the...

Looking at figure 5.5, one can see that there is only one journey for everyone, which starts from the Business Induction training programme until the Senior Leadership Development training programme. Not everyone needs to start with the Trainee Academy, because it is meant for trainees only. The Trainee Academy gives one the opportunity to better know PageGroup as a company, how the recruitment industry works and what the most essential tools are being used when working. The Business Induction training programme and Sales Academy 1-3 are linked together. Their purpose is to help one grasp the necessary recruitment skills and develop a commercial mentality. In addition to this, both training programmes are very interactive, as they range from theory based classroom style, discussions sessions, group exercises, workshops, and various types of role-plays.

- Introduction For this project, I conducted an interview for three different people in a one on one setting. Each person I interviewed ranged in age of six to eighteen years old. I asked them interview questions and took notes on their answers about their everyday life. The questions evaluated the cognitive, physical, and social emotional aspects of these individuals. The first interview took place with six year old Isaac. Isaac is in first grade and is my little cousin so I thought it would be interesting to find out more about him through the interviewing process.... [tags: Question, Interview, Psychology]

- Question 2: If you were asked to consult with the project team, what would you recommend to them. Recommendation 1: Remove a biography-oriented in-depth interview and test and graft two modules in one panel interview Since the selection process already includes a panel interview, a biography-oriented in-depth interview, a simulated group exercise, and a test, there would be a large amount of costs and time to invest. Also, a biography-oriented in-depth interview takes a long time and this should be either placed in the final selection stage for those who have passed all the selection procedures....

- 1. During the intro session at Tech, how would you rate the level of information given and was it thorough enough in describing Rockydale. I would rate the level of information given at the session, from the best of my memory, as excellent. The information showed a company geared towards growth and expansion. This says a lot about a company in current economic conditions and is what a future employee is looking for in a company. The session also touched on green alternatives that Rockydale is pursuing as well as the type of products produced by the company.... [tags: Intern, Internship, Learning, Skill]

- For my interview I decided to interview someone who thought they were pregnant. While interviewing the patient there were a lot of things I felt I shouldn't have done. When I welcomed the patient into my office I didn't close the door behind them and so all the noise from outside was coming in and it was hard to hear what she was trying to say to me. There was also lack of privacy lack of confidentiality; as everyone would be able to know all about the patients problems. I wasn't very professional during the interview as I didn't wear the appropriate clothes, I just had casual, every day clothes, and I felt I should have worn something smarter....

She has been one of my motivational supporters pushing me towards my goals, continuation of my education, and living life. Just one phone call, can’t explain how much I dearly miss her.

I did an interview with an experienced evaluator, Person A, who explained that every evaluation and assessment is unique so she used a variety of different theories depending on the evaluation....

- The interview is a tool that is commonly used to support the questionnaire. In this specific category, the person that is interviewing will have a set of questions that they will pose to each individual and record the subsequent responses. The oral interview carries the benefit of the act of providing clarity to responses, broadening the perspective and giving insight to meanings of trends as a result of specific engagement with certain devices, etc. The interviews are useful in the fact that they provide a means of establishing a follow-up mechanism on the questionnaire that is established and is highly beneficial for a smaller sample of respondents (Cassell, 2006)....
