Publisher's Summary

This book is written for everyone involved in the hiring process.

It will help hiring managers and recruiters find and hire more top-notch people for any job, from entry-level to CEO. Using the two-question Performance-based Interview, anyone who is involved in assessing candidates will quickly be more effective and more accurate.

Just as important, it will help job-seekers find better jobs by giving them an inside view of how most companies look for, assess and hire new employees. Hiring top talent starts by clarifying expectations up front. This has been shown to be the primary reason people perform at peak levels. This book is based on the Performance-based Hiring process Lou Adler introduced in his Amazon bestseller, Hire With Your Head.

The audiobook edition of The Essential Guide for Hiring & Getting Hired includes access to a PDF document of Supplementary Materials with all the images, charts and appendices that make the print version of the book so popular and useful.

Performance-based Hiring is now used around the world in small and large organizations and companies. However, it is a non-traditional hiring process. Performance-based job descriptions-which we call performance profiles-replace the commonly used skills- and experience-based job descriptions. Instead of emotions, feelings and biases, evidence is used to assess competency and fit within the organization. Rather than weed out people who don't posses some arbitrary list of prerequisites, compelling career messages are used to excite and attract the best.

On the other hand, understanding how companies make these critical decisions can help job-seekers navigate these tricky waters, the poorly designed hiring processes still in use. But no matter which side of the hiring desk you are on, hiring the right person or getting the right job will increase satisfaction, performance and motivation. All it takes is a little common sense, which surprisingly seems in short supply in the world of hiring.
