4 Things to Consider When You’re Ready to Hire
When you make the final hire/don’t hire decision, there are four (4) important things to consider:
The results of testing should count for 30 percent
The interview should count for 30 percent
The results of the reference check should count for 30 percen
Your feeling, intuition, and opinion should count for only 10 percent
(Why? Because no matter how hard you try to eliminate your biases, they may still have undue influence.)
If the applicant scores poorly in any one of these areas, it’s a deal breaker.
However, an exceptional rating in any one area shouldn’t, on its own, get someone hired. You’ll want to have good or better ratings for all four criteria before you make an offer of employment.
