Editor’s Note: It’s an annual tradition for TLNT to count down the most popular posts of the year. This is No. 17 of 2015. Our regular content will return on Jan. 4, 2016.
Here are the Top 10 ways to guarantee that you hire exactly the wrong person:
- You don’t have a clear picture of exactly which mental and physical capacities, attitudes, personality traits, and skills you need to hire.
- Instead of gleaning information from the candidate first, you tell the candidate all about the job and the kind of person you are looking for.
- You only recruit from the pool of people who are looking for a job rather than from your best prospects – the gainfully employed who may be interested in a new and/or better job opportunity.
