How To Get Good At Hiring

In Eric Jacobson On Leadership, Hiring on May 10, 2014 at 3:52 am

Here are some great tips for how to get good at hiring from the May issue of Inc. magazine:

  • Identify your star employees and use their characteristics as a guideline for your next hires.
  • Hire people for their potential. Don’t focus so much on resumes.  Otherwise, you may get someone who fulfills your current requirements but isn’t able to meet your company’s future needs.
  • Go for quality.  Hire fewer employees but of a higher caliber.
  • Carefully define the role.  Be specific about what you need.
