about

An investigator and an HR professional have more in common than one may think. One of the most important management functions an HR professional performs is recruiting, hiring, and retaining qualified employees. This endeavor has the potential to be challenging and frustrating. If it is done right, a qualified employee is hired. If it is done wrong, the HR professional ends up with a problem employee. This problem hire has the potential to cost the company thousands of dollars, affect the morale and productivity of the company, and means the company has missed hiring someone who could have been a valuable asset. In addition, good employees currently working for the company will have to work harder to compensate for the bad hire’s poor performance. However, avoiding a bad hire is easier said than done. 

During the employment interview, we seek to have an open and honest exchange of information with the applicant. However, applicants often lie in interviews to obtain the job. To further muddy the waters, applicants will go to great lengths to learn impression management skills. In my research for this book, I found considerably less information for the HR professional than for the applicant on how to interview. Unfortunately, interviewers are often poorly prepared to combat the job seeker's ability to mislead them. This book will better prepare you for this.
