Last, please read the Lewis (2018) article about how new interviewing techniques need to be employed because we fail to assess prospective new employees for their soft skills with traditional methods.

As an HR professional assigned with the task of changing interview methods at your company (current or past employer), which of the five new techniques in the Lewis (2018) reading fits best with your department? How does it compare with your employer’s current methods? Does a candidate’s potential role in your organization determine the interview method? Discuss what you have learned about employers’ approaches to staffing their organizations (Google, Apple, and your current or past employer).
Provide source citations if you utilize information from other authors/speakers (so that your peers can find the information if they wish).
