5 Steps to Hiring the Right People for Your Business By: Vacancies.ae

slide 2:

1. Write out what this person will do and what type of person would excel in the role. • Thats how big companes do it. If the new hire will be answering the phone or selling on one would you ideally want someone who sounds like a lifetime smoker or fresh positive and energetic If you hate micro-managing do you need someone who is resourceful and who takes initiative in addition to performing specific tasks When you think about the skills you need and the personality you want youre already more likely to find the right person.

2. Write an incredibly comprehensive ad. • Put your whole wish list in the ad. The skills education personality traits all of it. Rather than scaring the right people away or giving cues for a false interview youll be far more likely to attract someone who reads your ad and says "Thats me Thats me Id love to work for a company that appreciates who I am" You can weed out any fakers in a phone interview.

3. Put a "catch" in your ad. • One of the best pieces of hiring advice I ever heard came from a book I represented for my client Alan Blume. He said that at the end of every Help Wanted ad there should be three pieces of precise instructions to apply for the job. One of them is a catch. Assuming the ability to follow directions is critical to the role one of the instructions should be "Reply to this ad but change the subject line of the email to...whatever." Those who dont change the subject line can be immediately deleted because either they didnt care enough to read the whole ad or they are not attentive enough to directions.

4. Interview intelligently. • A first interview is not an occasion to sell someone on how wonderful it would be to work for your company. Its the chance to find out if there is a legitimate fit. Develop ask and listen to the answers to questions directly related to the personality traits youre looking for. The alleged skills are already on the resume. You can verify those when you check the references and you should always check references.

5. Interview more than one person ... and interview potential hires at least twice. • We all have a natural tendency to like whomever we like and dislike others. Obviously the smaller the company the more important it is that you like the people youll be spending 40 hours a week with but dont hire anyone without at least two interviews. The first one can be a short phone interview ideally followed by two in-person face-to- face meetings. Important: NEVER hire anyone if they are only qualified candidate for the job. Keep your pole in the water long enough to get at least two equally qualified people. This will save you from rushing the process or making a scarcity-crisis based decision. Its worth the wait. You will be investing their salary for weeks -- perhaps months -- during the training period.
