Episode 157 - Behavioral Interview Questions: Why They Don’t Always Work and What to Do About It - With Lou Adler
Lou Adler has been helping companies find and hire talented professionals for over four decades. More than 40 thousand recruiters and hiring managers have attended his workshops. He is the CEO and founder of The Adler Group – a consulting and training firm helping companies implement "Win-Win Hiring" programs using Lou's signature system, Performance-based Hiring℠ . Lou is the author of Hire With Your Head, The Essential Guide for Hiring & Getting Hired, and has been featured on Fox News, Inc. Magazine, BusinessInsider, Bloomberg, and The Wall Street Journal.
I first came across Lou's work on LinkedIn since he's a prolific contributor to that platform, writing many excellent posts and articles directed mainly at supporting recruiters and hiring managers. He's been on my wishlist for a guest spot on this podcast for a long time, so I'm delighted we finally had the chance to discuss issues we are both passionate about.
Lou and I discuss several recruitment topics, including the best and worst job interview questions, the best way to answer them, and recruitment technology. We provide many good examples of best practices that we hope can help you prepare for future job interviews.
This is a long episode, but there was no way I would cut any part of it because it's all gold for you! If you're interested to learn more about how to advance in the recruitment and selection process, this episode is a must-listen.
