The Prove-it-to-Me Interview

Test Before You Invest with an Activities-based Interview

The purpose of an interview is not to hire but instead to gather enough information to determine whether to hire. This means an interview is an information-gathering and sharing event. It must provide both the organization and the candidate with enough of the right information for each party to make an informed decision about the job opportunity.

But remember: talk is cheap. It can be easy to fall for the rehearsed responses to the typical interview questions. Activity-based interviews, however, provide job candidates with the opportunity to share what they know, how they think and use their skill levels in the actual completion of activities that are meaningful to the job and the organization.

The Forte Factor’s Prove-it-to-Me Interview program presents an informed, structured and process-driven approach to redefining interviewing in today’s behavioral-based workplace to best leverage a combination of activities and questions to find the right fit candidate for the job.

Incorporating the Prove-it-to-Me Interview into your organization’s hiring process can present significant benefits including:

  • Developing greater clarity about the actual performance attributes required to be successful in any role
  • Developing an evidence-based approach to assessing job candidates
  • Developing a way to have enough of the right information to wisely assess and evaluate any job

Hiring the right employees is critical for the success of any business. Ensure your interview approach clearly and accurately assesses the required attributes needed to identify the right fit to achieve success in every role.
