Hiring manager training to provide information on best practices in recruiting

July 6, 2015  


Human Resources Talent Acquisition is offering a four-part supervisor training series. This series, open to the first 20 registrants, is for hiring managers who want to enhance their ability to attract and recruit top talent and experience successful hires. Participants will learn best practices in recruiting, hear about what’s true in industry and have the opportunity to engage with and learn from other class members’ experiences.

Participants will move through four sessions that are designed to build upon one another, so those who enroll should plan to attend all four sessions. Sessions will include:

Overview / Building a Talent Pool
July 22 (W). 9-10:30 a.m. Mann Hall, Room 203.
Can recruiting really start with how you write the position description? Absolutely! This session will provide invaluable tips on building your talent pool, including developing a position description summary that captures the true skills needed. Learn how to attract diverse candidates by promoting the Purdue brand and develop your networking skills to get the word out about open positions.

Reviewing Resumes

You’ve taken steps to attract a strong talent pool. Now it is time to assess the resumes.

You will also learn about additional screening methods to filter through resumes and narrow your pool.

The Interview

Successful interviewing requires thinking ahead.

This session provides participants with the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained from the previous sessions.
