At last an innovation in graduate recruitment! Strength Based Interviews

Posted on

A great article in the AGR’s Graduate Recruiter magazine this month featured a very positive new development – strength based recruitment. We introduced it for a client this year at the telephone interview stage and the results have been really easy to see – specifically how fewer assessment days we have had to run compared to previous years. In addition the feedback from the applicants has been great too – they feel they have been better able to demonstrate who they are as a person not just trot out the same answers to the competency based questions which says little about them & does not engage them in the process as everyone else does the same thing!
We are currently launching it with another client for their 2010 intake.

Happy to share, just ask!

    Please can you tell me more about ‘strength-based’ interviews. I’m doing some research for our university careers centre
