In today’s economy, as changing demographics and technological evolution exert new
forces on the selection process, finding and hiring talent is more challenging than ever
before. This project describes how behavioral interviewing techniques can be used to
enhance the likelihood that Hoosier Energy Rural Electric Cooperative will: accurately
define target behaviors for specific jobs, effectively hire and retain talent, support a decentralized selection system and provide training to interviewers and ensure that
interviewer skills are maintained over time. The outcome of this project includes applying
my research findings to develop a comprehensive behavioral interviewing process and
associated training program for Hoosier Energy Rural Electric Cooperative.
