Beyond Job Descriptions
Searching for a new employee?
Look beyond the responsibilities and experience listed on your job descriptions. Think about the traits you valued in the employee who previously held the position or of other employees within your firm.
When interviewing potential candidates, have several team members sit in on the interview process to gain a better perspective of just who you want to bring on-board. Think about the person’s personality.
- Do you feel they might fit within the company environment?
- How well do they communicate?
- Do they seem to embrace questions that are asked, or do they become nervous over something they weren’t prepared to answer?
- Do they present themselves in a professional demeanor?
Some things you just can’t ‘see’ in a resume.
