To ensure that all staff are properly qualified we will collect resumes, transcripts, and letters of recommendation for each staff member once upon hire. This information will be compared to the job description and the qualifications of other applicants.
Her afternoons are for calling an applicant that fit the criteria of positions. If interviews are scheduled, they are done all in one day, as a panel interview (HR, Manager and Engineer) every 30 minutes with a 15 break in between to review and candidate. Since we were talking about interviews I asked about how she approaches interviews, what is her game plan and what is she trying to find out; she mentioned that they have a panel interview and all questions are pre-selected by managers. Every interviewer is asked the same question. Every panel member asks the same question. Only variations are if the answer might require additional questions to get to the root of the answer. They are behavior based questions. After all interviews are conducted they, mangers, make a final decision.
Answers to these questions will be considered as part of your application file and will be used to evaluate your candidacy. Please focus your answers on skills and abilities that apply to the job you are seeking.
5. Telephone Interviews: Once the applicants have been determined, the hiring committee will perform telephone interviews. The committee will determine the questions asked to the applicant and the same questions will be used for every applicant.
For instance, one of the selection tools you might considered while hiring personnel and/or staff would probably start with the completing of the application. Being able to fill out an application tells you mostly everything about someone. IN addition, It enables you to see if the individual can read, and understand English. Also, checking their cover letter, resume, and references to find out if the individual met the qualification the company is looking for. This will allow you to learn about their previous works, education, and references from employers. After, an interview must be set up. By giving an interview you get to meet the applicant, see their appearance, attitude, and enthusiasm.
When faced with having to find a job and then securing a job, the job interview has to be a home run! Simply submitting a professional resume and completing an application is not enough. You cannot settle for being average. You can wait for the next job opportunity, but there are no guarantees there will be one. In Piotrowski’s article, “Preparing for the Job Interview: Know Thyself,” she identifies the process of a job interview (Wyrick, 2014). The steps Piotrowski identified in her article are included below. The steps below focus on identifying job openings, researching companies, preparing for the interview: the pre-interview, the job interview, and the post-interview summary.
There are many users of the HR services within an organisation. One of these users is the Line Managers. The line manager predominantly oversees the day to day running of the organisation or department, ensuring smooth running and effectiveness for the business. Another need of line manager is that the company will organize certain training session for the employees. These sessions will increase the efficiency of employees and line managers can easily supervise them. Within my organization the Line Managers could be based within the support staff sector at the Fire Service Headquarters, or alternatively based out at station. Effective communication with those out at station is therefore essential to ensure smooth and effective running of the service. The line managers could be using our services within the attendance management team, to monitor an individual’s sickness, or to ensure a safe and effective return to work for a member of their team.
Phone screen is recommended especially for office personnel. Asking simple dialog questions such as “Why do you have an interest in working at McKeel?” will assist in determining if the candidate should be brought in for further interviewing.

1) Critical thinking: as an intern I am asked to provide thorough research daily on potential clients, current clients and lost clients. Along with bills, amendments and anything you can think of when it comes to government affairs. There is no bounds when it comes to government affairs research, there is nobody holding my hand. I must have the awareness to know when I have provided enough research,
Give the candidate a brief overview of the interview process. Emphasize that we would like to know about specific situations that fit the position. We have allocated 45 minutes for the interview. Assure the candidate that he or she can take a moment before responding.
For example, one of the primary duties of this internship is to write direct examination of witnesses to be used in court. From experience competing with the University of Minnesota Mock Trial Association, I have compiled a number of direct examination and am very comfortable with this kind of work. This familiarity allows me to spend more time asking important questions about the work of an attorney and develop new skills rather than spend time learning how to do a new job. This paired with my genuine excitement towards the work that I will be doing will add to the productive environment and will overall make me a positive addition to the office. Finally, as this is the first time that the City Attorney’s office has offered an internship position to a university student, I will hopefully inspire the office to offer this position in the future so that more students from Manitowoc can explore the legal field through hands on experience and work to achieve their career
