I am trying to find out any info about the WASP technique used in recruitment and selection interviews. I have never heard of it-Is there anyone with any information on this?

Thanks

  1. WASP
    WELCOME – intro / build rapport / explain the format of interview

    ACQUIRE INFORMATION – Get the candidate to talk through their CV / strengths & weaknesses / probe as necessary

    SUPPLY INFORMATION – Brief company history / expand on job description / package / Q&A’s

    PLAN & PART – What’s going to happen next & when / thank-you & good-bye.

    WASP in brief…..

    Welcome
    – put candidate at ease
    – explain purpose of interview
    – Run through structure of interiew
    – explain about notes

    Ask
    – all to do with asking questions and collecting information about candidate

    Supply
    – information about organisation/job/role

    Part
    – tying up loose ends of interview and ending positively

    I have developed a 2-page skill process checklist around WASP – really useful for interview role plays. It gives the Observors a good structure to deliver feedback to the Interviewer. I am very happy to send you (or anyone else) a copy. Just email me on info@abctrainingsolutions.biz

    And I thought WASP was a clandestine way of planning illegal discriminatory activity, given that it also stands for
    White
    Anglo
    Saxon
    Protestant

  5. I thought I’d invented it!
    I use WASP this way when interviewing candidates:
    W- worries and concerns
    A- ambitions and aspirations
    S- strengths and weaknesses
    P- present position

    I run a Recruiters Academy for anyone who wants to become better at recruitment and selection for either corporate or search firms.
