As I have mentioned before, I work as an executive recruiter. If there is one thing that is true for every position where you are working with people, it is that you can’t prepare for everything. However, with the right strategies in place you are more likely to attract the right candidates. So, in this episode, I want to share some insights for hiring and interviewing candidates as well as how to clearly define your expectations.
Listen in as I explain the importance of keeping an open mind when hiring or recruiting and why you need to ensure the story you are painting of the company is accurate. You will learn the importance of being clear in what the job entails, why the interview process should be a discussion for both parties and what questions you should not ask in an interview.
