Learner Reviews & Feedback for Hiring & Retaining Top Talent for People Managers by Coursera Project Network

About the Course

Hiring and firing employees is expensive - both finally and culturally. To minimize these costs, companies hope to make the right hiring decisions when recruiting. Retaining a new employee is equally as important as hiring them. This 1-hour long project-based course is ideal for people managers and leaders who want to learn how to hire the right people. We'll assess business needs, screen resumes, prepare for the interview, and create an onboarding experience to start new hires off on the right foot with professional development. By the end of this project, you’ll learn how to assess a candidate’s qualifications and fit throughout the hiring process and throughout their employment with the company. You’ll also learn best practices for identifying the talent that you actually need, conducting effective job interviews, and providing feedback to employees as an ongoing practice. Leaders aren't always formally trained and this course provides foundational knowledge for new managers to learn how to develop a team. This exercise is important for hiring managers to know how to properly match skilled talent with business needs. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

OK - but not great. No script was prepared for the course video. I would have expected that ... or at least edits to remove searching for words in the narration. The section on how to review resumes included only 1 example; an appropriate candidate to be interviewed. No consideration was given to eliminating resumes which is more commonly the real-world challenge in modern recruiting processes. No discussion of pre-interview assessments questions to screen out unqualified candidates, no discussion of rejection notes/process, management of resumes not selected, etc. The section on employee retention is too short and simplistic to provide much value. I don't think that the retention and recruiting topics fit easily in one course. Overall, I'd say the course provides some value if you have no experience recruiting but if you do have experience, I'd suggest looking for another option.
