Filling vacancies is a daunting task. Finding talent that fits both with your team and organizational culture, plus brings the skills, experience and credentials can feel like the old "needle in a haystack" exercise. One of the issues I've had to avoid over the years is falling into the trap of hiring myself...sort of.
Does the candidate:
- look like me?
Interviews Should Be Difficult
1. Always use a consistent set of prepared questions for every candidate applying for the same position.
How About You
Do you get caught in the "Just Like Me" trap? It's easy to do. I know, I've had to break free from it myself. Whether it's new team members or new friends, collect good data as you get to know them before making any serious commitment. You won't regret it.
I'd love to hear from you.
