"Tell me about a time...." The words evoke a child's fairy-tale innocence. Yet when used by an interviewer, they can help to determine the suitability of a job candidate by eliciting real-world examples of behaviors and experience that can save you and your organization from making a bad hiring decision. High-Impact Interview Questions shows you how to use competency-based behavioral interviewing methods that will uncover truly relevant and useful information. By having applicants describe specific situations from their own experience during previous jobs (rather than asking them hypothetical questions about "what would you do if..."), you'll be able to identify specific strengths and weaknesses that will tell you if you've found the right person for the job. But developing such behavior-based questions can be time-consuming and difficult. High-Impact Interview Questions saves you both time and effort. The book contains 701 questions you'll be able to use or adapt for your own needs, matched to 62 in-demand skills such as customer focus, motivation, initiative, adaptability, teamwork, and more. It allows you to move immediately to the particular skills you want to measure, and quickly find just the right tough but necessary questions to ask during an interview. Asking behavior-based questions is by far the best way to discover crucial details about job candidates. High-Impact Interview Questions gives you the tools and guidance you need to gather this important information before you hire.

Is your organization using the most effective type of interviewing in your hiring and promotional processes? Selection research results indicate that the most valid type of interview to use is a structured, behavioral interview that is focused on the success related knowledge, skills and personal qualities. Behavioral Interviewing Guide provides you with a practical step-by-step approach for planning, conducting and evaluating a structured, behavioral interview. Some of the many supporting documents, guides and techniques included in the book are: Selection criteria definitions, Twenty five pages of categorized behavioral questions, Generic interview guides for both management and non-management positions, Self assessment quiz, and; Generic behavioural background/reference check guide. By using the practices and techniques presented in the Behavioral Interview Guide you will hire or promote good performers more often. Is it worth it? You bet! Selection research studies indicate good workers can do twice as much work as poor workers. In addition, each year a good worker is with an organization, they contribute a monetary value equivalent in the range of 70% to 140% of their annual salary. Bad decisions, equipment/material damage, accidents, and replacement hiring fees are just some of the substantial costs associated with hiring or promoting poor workers. The behavioral interview is based on the practical assumption that a person's past behavior will predict their future behavior. If a person has demonstrated strong initiative, work standards, ability to learn, judgment, flexibility, honesty, attendance etc. in past positions, they will, in all probability, continue to show the same behavior in future positions. The Behavioral Interview Guide provides you with hundreds of good behavioral questions to choose from and explains the necessary structure and steps to ensure interview success.

The War Against Boys

How Misguided Policies are Harming Our Young Men

An updated and revised edition of the controversial classic--now more relevant than ever--argues that boys are the ones languishing socially and academically, resulting in staggering social and economic costs. Girls and women were once second-class citizens in the nation's schools. Americans responded w ith concerted efforts to give girls and women the attention and assistance that was long overdue. Now, after two major waves of feminism and decades of policy reform, women have made massive strides in education. Today they outperform men in nearly every measure of social, academic, and vocational well-being. Christina Hoff Sommers contends that it's time to take a hard look at present-day realities and recognize that boys need help. Called "provocative and controversial . . . impassioned and articulate" ("The Christian Science M"onitor), this edition of "The War Against Boys" offers a new preface and six radically revised chapters, plus updates on the current status of boys throughout the book. Sommers argues that the problem of male underachievement is persistent and worsening. Among the new topics Sommers tackles: how the war against boys is harming our economic future, and how boy-averse trends such as the decline of recess and zero-tolerance disciplinary policies have turned our schools into hostile environments for boys. As our schools become more feelings-centered, risk-averse, competition-free, and sedentary, they move further and further from the characteristic needs of boys. She offers realistic, achievable solutions to these problems that include boy-friendly pedagogy, character and vocational education, and the choice of single-sex classrooms. "The War Against Boys" is an incisive, rigorous, and heartfelt argument in favor of recognizing and confronting a new reality: boys are languishing in education and the price of continued neglect is economically and socially prohibitive.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field within computer science that is attempting to build enhanced intelligence into computer systems. This book traces the history of the subject, from the early dreams of eighteenth-century (and earlier) pioneers to the more successful work of today's AI engineers. AI is becoming more and more a part of everyone's life. The technology is already embedded in face-recognizing cameras, speech-recognition software, Internet search engines, and health-care robots, among other applications. The book's many diagrams and easy-to-understand descriptions of AI programs will help the casual reader gain an understanding of how these and other AI systems actually work. Its thorough (but unobtrusive) end-of-chapter notes containing citations to important source materials will be of great use to AI scholars and researchers. This book promises to be the definitive history of a field that has captivated the imaginations of scientists, philosophers, and writers for centuries.
