Hire me!!! Hire he!!!

The market is full of people looking for jobs!  It’s what we’d call a “buyer’s market” from a business standpoint.  As employers, you probably have more candidates than you can shake a stick at (as we say in the South).  The real question is, “which one is right for your position?”

To answer that question, you have to have a very clear idea of what you need the position to accomplish.  You need to know how you’ll measure success.  You need to know how the position interacts with others.  From answering these and other questions about the position, you’re more capable of detailing a good job description, a good ad for candidates, developing good questions for interviews, and determining the behavior style that is best suited to the position.

Then, and only then, should you start gathering candidates for review.  You should set up a grading scale that will help you objectively evaluate each candidate screened.  And you should stick to the plan — even if your brother applies for the job.

You don’t do yourself or the candidate any favors if you hire someone who isn’t well suited to the job at hand.  The last thing any of us need right now is unnecessary turnover.  The market is offering you a chance to hire strategically and help move your company forward.  If you don’t have the time or patience to take the steps yourself, call on a company like mine who can help you do it.

Let’s get people working again — the Right people in the Right jobs!
