Introducing The Rapid Guide to Interviewing

Did you know that few things can destroy a company like bad hiring decisions and heavy turnover? Consider this: if your hiring managers choose the wrong candidate, your company could pay the price for months or even years to come. And it can be a steep price, too. A professional job that pays $50,000 annually and turns over too quickly can cost a company as much as twice that in hiring expenses and lost productivity, not to mention the negative impact on the company environment and culture!

Rapid Guide to Interviewing provides your hiring managers a comprehensive guide to ensure they master key interview skills and legal hiring practices.

If you are an organization marketing to hiring authorities, Rapid Guide to Interviewing makes a great sales tool resource that you can distribute to potential clients so that your name will be in front of them at the perfect time – when they are conducting interviews and making hiring decisions!


In fact, Rapid Guide to Interviewing is much more effective than typical marketing tools such as pens and water bottles, since it contains information that managers will actually use and refer to time and again. And, thanks to our customized interview guide, each time they refer to the Rapid Guide to Interviewing, they will continually view your organization's logo, message, and contact information.

Customer Examples

The Rapid Guide to Interviewing and the Rapid Guide to Layoff Survival are valuable outreach and information tools for our One-Stop.  We can provide needed information to our customers in a handy pocket-size booklet with the material being organized in an easy-to-read and understand format.  The feedback from our customers has all been extremely positive...with relation to both print quality and content.


Prior to becoming a Rapid Guide customer, we used some of the Dahlstrom books.  The content of those books was good, but the books were not the convenient size nor could we market our location using these tools.  We use the Rapid Guide to Interviewing at different public events and as a hand out at our local One-Stop.  We use the Rapid Guide to Layoff Survival at all Rapid Response events when we work wiht workers who are soon to become laid off.


I am glad we discovered this resource and would recommend it to other One-Stop locations!
