It is the new year and therefore it is the season for change and new beginnings. You may be looking to hire a new employee(s) or rather you might be searching for a new job yourself. Now is the time to evaluate your hiring process and to consider what factors many accomplished employers are using to hire.
Good employees are necessary for success at your company and to ensure you are hiring a good match. It is both important that you connect with the hiring employee(s) and that they connect with you. You want a lasting employee, and if you hire someone who joins to your mission, they are more likely to stay long-term. Hiring new employees is also expensive, from the training process to new equipment. Making the right choice the first time is key. Here are a few factors identified by Forbes to assess, when hiring a good employee:
- Competency– Assess education, experience and skills to be able to perform the job.
- Compatibility–Will the person get along with you and your team? Will they get along with possible clients or outside parties?
- Commitment–Is the person interested in the longevity of the work you are doing or is this only a stepping stone?
A final step in the interview process is the references check. Take advantage of this step, to find out as much as you can about your candidate(s) and hopefully gather more outside information. It is important to consider what necessary characteristics in a candidate you would like and how you can evaluate that in the interview process.
Once you understand the recruitment method, you can tailor the information to your own job application and interview in the best way to represent yourself.
