McQuaig for Interviewers and Hiring Managers

Psychometric assessment is just part of the hiring process. Interviews provide information tests can’t reach. Research shows that interviews, references and application forms are very bad at predicting whether people will succeed.

Yet interviews alone lack objectivity because you will be hugely influenced by your prejudices, likes and dislikes without realising it.

McQuaig helps your hiring managers and interviewers carry out their interviews to the highest possible standard through the McQuaig Job Fit Interview Guide and Interviewing Questions report.
