From the Back Cover:

Killer Interviews Everyone understands the importance of hiring outstanding talent. But how often have you heard seasoned interviewers say:

"Our team doesn't demonstrate enough of a sense of urgency in our recruiting." "I don't have a strategic vision of what I'm trying to accomplish in the interview." "I don't know is the questions I use are the best one to ask." "I find it hard to conduct a buy interview yet build a lasting rapport with the candidate." "My selection is too often based on instinct alone. I need to know how to use objective criteria during interviews as well." "I don't know the most effective steps to follow from making the offer to closing the sale." "I'm not skilled at negotiating a compensation package."

Sound familiar? If so, Impact hiring can help you develop a strategic vision for hiring and a management framework to implement the process regardless of the job function, industry, or company size. Impact Hiring transcends the interviewer dominated approach. Rather, it provides you with the knowledge to build an interactive partnership that will win you and your company top talent.
