Hire Right!


August 08, 2005

Hire Right!

Small business owners all too frequently make hiring decisions based on thier gut feelings about a person. Unfotunately, you can easily be fooled by your emotions. It's absolutely critical that you invest in learning how to conduct a "behavioral" oriented interview, where you ask questions that require a candidate to answer how they "have performed before" vs. how they "might perform". You need to assess what they "have done" not what they think they "will do". Anyone can imagine what they might do. You need someone who has been there and done that! Making a poor hiring decision can cost you plenty when you have limited staff. Imagine what might happen if you have 5 employees and one of them turns out to you a bust. 20% of your manpower walks out the door and who will be left to fill in for that person.. YOU! Don't go on the cheap when it comes to learning how to hire right.
