The #1 Key to Hiring the Best Candidate
Hiring is risky business. Candidate searches are time-consuming and expensive, and you often don’t whether you made the right choice until the new employee has spent a few weeks on the job. If you didn’t choose the right person, you get to start the process all over again from scratch. Bad hires are frustrating and costly, so how can you reduce hiring risk, control costs and hire the best candidate every time?
Why It’s So Hard to Hire Well
Hire for skills! Hire for cultural fit! Hire your CEO’s nephew!
Everyone is full of advice when it comes to hiring, but there is no one-size-fits-all approach to finding the right person. Every job has unique skill requirements, every team has a unique way of interacting, and your needs will vary greatly from one role to another.
Even if you clearly define all the skills and attributes you’re looking for, you then must go out and find someone who fits the bill. This often feels like looking for a needle in a haystack. You’ll usually have to compromise somewhere and choosing where to compromise is a gamble.
But there are times when you find someone you think is 100 percent perfect for a role, and you realize after they’ve been doing the job for a month, they weren’t the person you thought they were in their interview. There are a lot of people who are great at selling themselves but aren’t so great at doing the job and it’s easy to be “fooled” by someone who interviews well.
