      1st Answer Example

      "I have held several roles where I had multiple conflicting priorities. Most of the time, I will go to my boss and work out an important/urgent scale to rate the tasks I have to complete. If something is urgent and important, it gets the highest priority mark, and I work on those items first. I fill gaps in my schedule with projects of a lesser priority. As a successful recruiter for the past six years, using technology like my Outlook calendar and OneNote was vitally important in helping me track progress and block appropriate times for meeting deadlines. As a result of this planning technique, I have been able to meet deadlines for all of my projects."

In the end, putting metrics to use is the best way to hire the best candidates and save money in the end.

      Written by Amy Hagan on September 6th, 2021

      1st Answer Example

      "I have used many different types of metrics in the past. The type of metrics you use in recruiting is often based on the specific organization and jobs that you recruit for. In the past, I have used time-to-fill, cost-per-hire, and attrition in the first year. I have also been using a new metric for quality of hire. We use this metric to track how new hires perform. We then compare the stats with the employee's specific information to see if we can identify patterns in quality candidates. I also find it very important to use sourcing metrics to find out where our best hires are sourced from so we can focus our recruitment advertising budgets in those spaces."

      Written by Amy Hagan on September 6th, 2021

      1st Answer Example

      "Last year, I was assigned support of a recruitment effort for the new Chief Financial Officer at my organization, and this gave me my first opportunity to work hand in hand with our CEO. While I had met her and talked with her in the past, this opportunity could have been one where I came in with a pit in my stomach and a nervous wreck. Rather, I grabbed the bull by the horns and scheduled a meeting for the two of us to discuss the details of the role, the ideal candidate, and how we should attack the recruitment process. I laid out a plan of action in that meeting and made this recruitment effort a top priority. During the process, I scheduled weekly 15-minute check-ins for us, which was key to quickly building that trust and rapport with her. I am happy to report that we had a new CFO starting just five months after the position became open."

    How do you stay current on changes in the staffing and HR field?

      How to Answer

      Because laws and trends in the staffing industry are continuously changing, keeping yourself up to date in any way possible is vital to both the success of yourself and any organization that employs you. In asking this question, your interviewer wants to hear that you are proactive in staying ahead of the changing landscape in the staffing world. This can include employment law changes and new technologies and innovations in the field. Before your interview, think of ways that you actively participate in continuing education, the journals and publications that you subscribe to, and ways that you network with others in your field. Be able to highlight your desire to continue to learn and grow into the future as the next Staffing Manager with this organization.

    What HR software have you worked with in the past?

      How to Answer

      An experienced Staffing Manager and HR professional should have a good knowledge base and varying experience in different HRIS systems. As you answer this question, you should explain your experience with different HRIS systems and what role the systems played in your previous work. You should be familiar with the company's system, but you do not need to have specific experience using the system first-hand. If possible, stay focused on the work you have performed in applicant tracking systems and candidate relationship management tools in the past because these will be the most vital tools you will use as this organization's next Staffing Manager. No matter how you answer this question, make sure our interviewer walks away knowing that you have the right experiences working in HRIS systems to hit the ground running on theirs.
