Organizational Sponsor: Twenty Hats

How would you like to master an interviewing technique that increases the retention and overall fit of highly specialized, high commitment volunteers ― volunteers like the docents, advocates, or group leaders that you need to sustain your program? Behavior-based interviewing has been demonstrated to lower volunteer drop out rates and raise the average volunteer time commitment.

Learn how to:

  • Craft behavior-based interview questions that zero right in on the competencies you seek – including professional skills and interpersonal strengths
  • Interview with behavior-based questions to achieve objective results
  • Evaluate a candidate’s responses to minimize the “maybe” zone and know which volunteers to bring on board
