A job interview helps to screen your applicants and helps you get to know them, but how can you be absolutely sure that you are hiring not only great employees but the best ones you could hope for? Staffing agencies, like ourselves, are experts at finding the right person for the job. Below are some tips to help us find the best people for you.
Have an accurate job description
The first step in hiring the best employees is to make sure your job description accurately shows applicants what role you expect to be filled and what skills they will use for the job. Have a different job description for each job in your organization, so that applicants will know which job fits them the best.
Give your applicants a test
Resumes and interview questions will only tell you so much about an applicant. As part of your application, you should also give them a test with a proven assessment tool. This will help you determine how introverted, extroverted, agreeable, uncompromising, conscientious, lackadaisical, emotionally stable or anxious an applicant is. These are not the only traits that can be determined through an assessment. The traits you want in an applicant depend on the job they are seeking.
Read through the resumes
We have a good idea of what the ideal candidate looks like for you, so we can sort people based on relevant experience or skills. This will help us get through resumes quickly.
