Interviewing New Hires

Choosing a new member of the team relies on asking the right questions when you first interview them for the role.

Applicants are likely to have provided you with a good resume. If not you should rightly discard them from the shortlist. The good ones will have laid out their past experience, their skills and qualifications and perhaps even some discussion about why they are the person to fit the description in your advertisement. If you have a number of good applicants, the descriptions on paper will make it hard to decide who is best for the job.

How do you make sure that you are making the right choice?

This week, I want to give you a system for your interviews that you can use every time you interview someone for a position in your business.
