Can anyone tell me what the hiring rating of IBCO stands for or means?

I love the idea of using hiring flexibilities, including student programs for that purpose.  I would add Schedule A and Veterans program options to the list as well.

Thanks, Susan,

You've been very helpful.  What are your comments hiring student career interns to evaluate on-the-job performance?

Comment by Susan Frieswyk on October 25, 2013 at 10:17am

1.  Strong job analysis pre-posting.

2.  Include subject matter experts.

3.  Structured behavioral interviews.

Hiring Managers:  How to avoid hiring a Homer Simpson to work in your nuclear power plant

How do you advise your hiring managers during the hiring process?  What are your top 3 suggestions or processes?

Ms. Rawji - All good ideas, although the exam isn't useful for all occupations.  Using a SME is always a good idea and combining that with a behavioral interview is the way to go.

I agree. I personally know people who lie on their resumes and they get the job even though I also applied and am more knowledgeable

Dear HR Recruiters,

Here's a riddle.  How do hiring managers ensure that what they see is what they get?  Managers have complained to me so many times that they can't hire quality federal employees.  I'm not an HR expert or HR trained, but even I can determine some potential solutions.

Help me out here!  To screen out those applicants who exaggerate on their applications, hiring managers can (1) test performance by hiring student career intern positions, (2) include a subject matter expert on the interview panel, and (3) include a paper exam in the interview process.

Am I crazy?  Is there some specific reason why these processes are not routinely part of the hiring process?
