SmartSearch partners with Humbert Group to present Why the Best Qualified Candidate Rarely Gets Hired

OCEANSIDE, CA January 18, 2010 — Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS) the makers of SmartSearch, an industry leading talent acquisition and applicant tracking system, partners with „RecruiterGuy‟ at The Humbert Group LLC, a provider of human resources consulting and contract recruiting services, to present a webinar on January 28, 2010 showcasing best practices in candidate evaluation and interviewing.

The webcast will emphasize the need for finding the best qualified candidate based on skills, experience and education, and interview techniques for identifying which ones are the best fit in order to make positive, measurable impact within the talent acquisition process.

According to Bill Humbert, the original RecruiterGuy and principal at The Humbert Group LLC, “In most organizations, employees that excel in their work get promoted to managerial positions. Oftentimes, these newly minted managers must learn their new jobs and at the same time are expected to fill the position they just vacated. Recruiters and human resources source and submit candidates, but where in the process is the new manager taught how to interview? It‟s this lack of hiring manager training that can lead to poor hiring decisions, and is the underlying reason why the best candidate rarely gets hired.”

The webinar on “Why the Best Candidate Rarely Gets Hired” is the second in a series of best practices programs to be presented by SmartSearch in 2010 in partnership with its clients that have proven expertise in specific talent acquisition, recruiting, and staffing areas.
