It has been estimated that the wrong hire costs 1.5 times that person's annual salary. To a great extent, use of valid selection tools minimizes such costs. Despite the poor validity, unstructured interviews are still very commonly used in job interviews. Structured approach to interviewing, on the other hand, substantially enhances predictive validity of selection process. Competency Based Selection technique, with its structured approach, has been found to be the most valid among the existing selection tools. One of the most commonly used techniques among these is Competency Based Interview.
It is, therefore, important that panelists who are part of any selection interviews are trained in Competency Based Interview.
