||Assessing Job Applicants
David Wilson, Canada
"Hi Everest, when I consider a job candidate for a position, I use 'behavioral interviewing' to assess their qualifications and experience.
I also check formal references (i.e. past supervisors/managers) and I verify academic qualifications by directly contacting the educational institution. For positions dealing with vulnerable individuals (i.e. children), I have used 'criminal record checks' to ensure risk is minimized.
Professional organizations will also test for professional knowledge and a code of standard/ethics. Regards, David."
