How to Find the Right Candidate for a Job
Posted on 05/27/2019
Steve Jobs once said, “It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.” Whether you’re a business owner, professional or even a low-level employee, chances are you might be asked to sit in on a job interview for the company.
Sorting through applicants can often feel overwhelming—maybe even downright impossible. This person has a lot of experience, but didn’t shine in their interview. That person might not have much experience, but did a great job on their practice project. How do you decide which person to bring on the team? Fortunately, there are a few tips to keep in mind. Here’s how to find the right candidate for a job.
1. Did they do their research?
2. Do they ask great questions?
3. Are they enthusiastic?
4. Do they share their weaknesses?
5. How do they solve a scenario?
Deciding who to hire can be an incredibly difficult and overwhelming process. However, there are a few ways to wade through the interviews. If you’re in a position to hire, keep these tips in mind to find the right candidate for the job and build the best team possible.
