Although the country’s unemployment rates have dropped significantly over these past eight years, the competition for a job seems to be getting more difficult. For every one job on average you have at least 50 applicants trying to stand out to attain the position. Companies struggle with determining how to sift through hundreds of applications, who they should bring in for an interview, and how to manage the data they collect when the person comes in.
FurstPerson, is an industry leader in data-driven talent solutions, and has come up with a way for companies to really determine the best candidate. It offers a cloud-based talent solution that releases data through an infographic that has taken into account over 20 years of reliable data and highlights the best ways to help clients and find the best talent.
"An effective interview process is crucial to finding and hiring the right people for client-facing roles; if not done correctly, the company will be challenged to hire the people most likely to contribute to customer satisfaction and organizational success," said Jeff Furst, CEO of FurstPerson. "We are pleased to share our insight on what makes for a successful interview and provide employers with helpful advice to ensure their time spent interviewing candidates is more valuable and impactful."
The solution requires new candidates to complete a comprehensive talent assessment solution that allow companies to determine the structured questions and create a weighted scoring system. This can weed out a ton of possible candidates right off the bat that won’t end up working out. Then with the use of FurstPerson’s SmartGuide solution, the interview platform will also allow employers to more accurately predict candidate success.
Their guide “How to Conduct an Effective Interview” is available on their website along with access to their new solution. Furstperson said since development, its customers have seen year over year of improvement in service levels, support resolutions, and sales growth. This solution is just another notch in its belt. Details on Furstperson’s full portfolio can be found on its website.
