PTC-SC holds semi-monthly programs which serve as a forum for the discussion of current issues in personnel and testing, as well as avenues of professional development. Guest speakers are invited to discuss specific topics relevant to the field of personnel selection and training. The programs are held at various Southern California locations and are generally combined with a luncheon.

TIME: 11:00 AM – 1:45 PM

For our first PTC-SC  event, we will be hosting a Brown Bag Discussion on Structured Interview Techniques and Practices. This luncheon is designed as an open forum discussion which will encourage the sharing and exchanging of ideas and best practices for structured interviews.

Please bring your questions, current practices, and creative new ideas regarding this process, as well as any materials you would like to share with our members that will help strengthen our network.

Discussion topics will include but are certainly not limited to:

• Structure of the Interview Process

• Rater Rotation Methods
• Panel Orientation and Debriefing
• Rating Guides and Rubrics
