You are listening to Trinity employment’s, a player matchmaker podcast starring your host and the co-founder of Trinity employment specialists, Cory Minter.
Hello, welcome back to the “A” player matchmakers for Medical Jobs Tulsa, where we’re always trying to find different ways to add value to job seekers and employers in the title of this podcast is mistakes that managers make when they’re conducting interviews. And obviously this particular episode is going to be for our managers out there. And the reason that this is important is that there are about a million laws for all of us, HR managers, recruiters, whatever it is, interviewers to follow. And our job is to be really great at what it is that we do. Now since we’re a recruiter, um, our job is to be good at recruiting, to know all these laws and to know the different, um, expectations of, of the law and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But most likely, most of our managers, they, their job is to do their job. It’s not to be an expert at all of the restrictions and concerns.
And you know, you can do something as simple as, you know, if you are out and about and you’re just doing, um, you know, small talk, it might be a general conversation piece to say, so, uh, how many kids do you have? Um, Oh, do you have kids? Oh, cool. You’re wanting, it’s a nice gesture in normal life to ask these questions. However, the barrage of, of legalities that have taken place over the past few years has made this, uh, something that, uh, you can’t ask that question. And there are several questions in here that you can’t ask, but there are just some general mistakes that managers make because they’re not good at this. So I want to bring up a few things that I think are going to help our managers at least think about the interviewing that they do. Um, because we, we staff, we staff for so many different industries in, most of our managers are not, their sole job is not to just be an interviewer. We make finding Medical Jobs Tulsa easier than it’s ever been.
So let’s get started. I always start out with some Medical Jobs Tulsa statistics. And the very first statistic that we have here is the average cost of one bad hire is nearly $15,000, $15,000. And the average cost of losing a good hire is nearly $30,000. It’s really important to get it right to three workers say that they’ve accepted a job and later realized it was a bad fit and half of these workers have quit within six months. That’s a huge loss to employers. Um, especially if the cost of a good har losing a good harvest 30,000. The last statistic is 75% of workers say that they’re loyal to their current employer and much less. 54% say that they feel that their company is loyal to them. This is a study done by career builder, um, in this study was done in 2018 and so when mangers conduct job interviews, they have to walk a fine line.
They gotta be polite but assertive. They gotta listen, not talk too much. Um, always be thinking about the next question, make sure it’s a good strategy question, you know, and they’ve got a pro beyond, you know, the basic general stock answers that everyone has and they’ve gotta be able to avoid all the illegal questions that are out there to watch out for that. And so it can, it can become really difficult. And so I’ve got five things here that I think is, can be helpful for managers. Um, the, the number, the first one is mistake number one, talking too much. You don’t want to deliver a big long monologue about your job or company, especially when it’s right out of the gate. You know, this interview is really about your chance to listen and learn. And so for me, I aim for about an 85, 15 split or a 90 10 split, 90% them talking 10%.

I’m talking. Um, and that helps you just, that percentage really helps you to understand where you need to be at. Now, this is, this is another really great piece of advice. I think you would not believe what you will learn when you allow the uncomfortable silence to work for you as an interviewer. And what I mean by that is, is that if you ask a question and you didn’t really get what you wanted and you sense that there’s something else that they should probably interject. If you’re able to just sit there with your eyes open and giving a facial expectation that you’re expecting more, a lot of times people will reveal the truth at that point in time because, it’s, they’ve gone past their creative juices. And so I get more of the truth whenever I, I ask a question, you know, like, what, what do you think your manager would tell us when I call all of your references or your pro, your past employer, what are they gonna say about you, do you think?

And you know, after they stop with their first, you know, reaction, sit there for a little bit and see if they might have something else. And a lot of times that’s where you learn, um, that that is something that is a learned skill, um, on how to do it. A lot of that you have to use your facial expressions to basically, uh, urge them to want to keep talking. But that, that’s just a helpful hint that, that I would like to offer you. It’s worked very well for me. Mistake number two, failing to prepare. Don’t quickly scan a resume for the very first time right before you sit down and then, um, just kind of wing it that, that really, even just from a statistical standpoint, you’re gonna, you’re gonna end up with a, uh, you know, they would, they would call it a flawed, um, sample where whereas you ask one set one, one person, one set of questions and other person knows set of questions, it doesn’t give you an ability to equally rate them out. Don’t hesitate to call for Medical Jobs Tulsa and get on the right track to that new medical job in the Tulsa area.
