Frequently Asked Questions

Hiring Managers and Interviewers are the primary audience. There’s good content in here for recruiters and HR professionals, as well.
Yes, there’s content that John – who has worked with leading tech companies like Uber, Salesforce, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, and co-founded the national tech recruiting conference, Talent42 – developed just for tech Hiring Managers. We get tech.

Each episode is about 3-6 minutes long, totaling about 4 hours for the interviewer version, and 5 hours for the hiring manager version. There’s additional content – up to another 4 hours – that can be unlocked once you finish the core 4- or 5-hour version. This allows you to keep the learning going throughout a year if you’d like – you can “drip” another 10 episodes/quarter.

No, this is a more comprehensive program that starts at 4 hours of content, broken up into video episodes that are 3-5 minutes long each. If you’re looking for something really basic covering just behavioral interviewing and legal dos and don’ts, this likely isn’t your most affordable option, as fees start at $16,000 for 10 users.
Yes. It goes way beyond basic behavioral 101 interviewing techniques and legal dos and don’ts. If you just need just the basics, this is probably not the right match. This training is for hiring teams that want to get aligned on hiring criteria, raise the bar on talent, effectively evaluate both hard and soft skills/fit, create a process that’s engaging and fast, and improve their ability to sell the best talent.

“We built a ‘License to Hire’ program for our hiring managers. We wanted to augment our own best practices with thought leadership external to IBM, so we leveraged content created by John Vlastelica, one of my favorite facilitators and thought leaders, into our training. We’ve already deployed it to over 17,000 people. We use NPS to measure effectiveness, and have received amazing feedback so far.”
