Successful hiring requires effective interviewing

In order to hire successfully, you need to be effective at interviewing, however few recruiters are trained on how to conduct interviews. The better the interview, the better you'll understand your candidates, preventing you from hiring the wrong applicant.

In this course, we help you develop a comprehensive interview process, which you can then practice in our realistic VR scenarios.

You'll learn how to approach and execute job interviews, including how to identify talent gaps in a team and ask questions to uncover behaviours of the candidate.
