CHICAGOJoin Core from October 24 to November 4 for the Core Classroom “Fundamentals of Hiring”. Led by experienced organizational leader Julia Davis, who developed and continues to teach Core’s Fundamentals of Management course, this Classroom will provide a brief introduction to effective hiring. It will utilize readings, videos, live chat sessions, and practical application assignments to instill its concepts. By the end of this Classroom, attendees will be able to identify the key steps to effective hiring, understand the potential impacts of bias on the hiring process, and learn how to advocate for fair and effective hiring practices.
