Tips when hiring

Hey! To help you get your questions answered quickly, I created this new mini-post series all about Squarespace and Biz tips. Blogs in the mini-series will be shorter and sometimes related to a Freebie to help you get some answers to your questions.

Hiring the right employees can make or break your business. Focus on getting to know the candidate’s capabilities, knowledge, skills, confidence, attitude, and potential.

Here are some tips that you can use to hire the right employee for your business:

Look for Someone With a Commitment

A person committed to your business is the candidate you want to hire.

You don’t want to hire an employee who switches jobs frequently for a higher salary. If your candidate is not loyal to any business in the past, hiring this person could be a problem for your business.

That person will leave sooner or later!

Check Compatibility

Good, but what are you looking for? Do you want to find the perfect fit for your business? Are you looking for someone who can handle specific tasks herself?

Maybe you want Someone with no experience to train her the way you want. Establish the criteria for your ideal candidate before starting your selection for interviews.

Make your interview experiential

  • During the interview, test your candidate on certain things that will appear on the job.
  • Ask them directly how they would work through different scenarios. You will find patterns of behavior that can help you decide whether this person would be the perfect fit.
  • Ask your candidates to talk about their biggest mistake and what they learned… this will allow you to know how they react to challenges.

When posting for recruitment, ensure that all the job requirements, such as responsibilities, required education, experience, knowledge, and skills, are mentioned.

It will help you evaluate candidates and attract applicants that fulfill all your responsibilities and requirements.

Remember, you can’t ask personal questions during the interview, but you can look at their social presence!

You’ll be surprised what you can find out about a candidate by researching Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, or Twitter. And you can also recruit through social media platforms!
