the secret to being a great interviewer (4 of 6 in the “Hiring Right” series)

If you’ve ever hired the wrong person for a job, you know how frustrating and costly it can be.

More often than not, the real problem is interviewing techniques that don’t actually reveal if a candidate’s skills match your needs.

In this session 4 of my 6 part Hiring Right series, I share with you the secret to being a great interviewer.

In this video, you’ll learn the skills that great interviewers use to gain clarity and confidence on whether or not a candidate can actually do the job you need them to do.

how to not waste time interviewing the wrong person (3 of 6 in the “Hiring Right” series)

Have you ever spent a few hours interviewing someone only to realize at the end you’d wasted valuable time? In this 3rd of the 6 part Hiring Right series, I share with you a way to screen for the right fit BEFORE you even consider scheduling a full-on interview.

It was from having this experience myself that I produced a phone screening process that lets you quickly identify if the candidate is worth interviewing in person or not. This process takes about 10 minutes and is guaranteed to save you time in your recruiting process.

In this video, you’ll get the simple steps and outline to help you screen out candidates that are NOT a right fit before you interview them.

do this before recruiting for your next new hire (1 of 6 in “Hiring Right” series)

Have you ever hired for a position only to find that while that person was helpful, they did not actually alleviate any of the pressures or stress on you? Or maybe you know you need to hire someone, but you’re not completely sure what your next best hire should be.

A simple way to know your next best hire is to assess where you as an owner or manager are spending your time. Then you want to ask yourself where is the best place for you to be spending your time.  Where do you bring the most value to the business? It is those other areas that you want to consider making your next hire.

In today’s video 1st of 6 videos in the “Hiring Right” mini-series, I show you a simple way to do that assessment and know the right position to hire for next.

Next week in part 2 of this 6 part “Hiring Right” series I show you how to be certain WHO is the right person to hire for the job.

The ONE thing you can do to ensure that candidate is a right fit…

When asked what their biggest frustration was as a manager, over 30% of survey respondents said they wished they were better at hiring.

In the early stages of my career, I remember feeling that way as a manager.  I was hiring a lot of people who didn’t seem to be the right fit, and it was super frustrating.

Can you relate?

That frustration pushed me to learn how to hire better.  I learned that one of the key steps was knowing how to ask better questions.

Questions that let you get insight into the candidate’s depth of their skill, practices, and qualifications to the job well.

Questions that let you how they think, their strengths, weaknesses, and how they problem solve.

Questions that help you get to know the candidate, not just on paper, but as a person.

Asking those kinds of questions gives you a whole different understanding of who that person is, and if they are really qualified to do the job.

In this week’s video, I walk you through what kinds of questions to ask, and what to listen for too. I help you understand how to set up the interview to ensure you’re confident and clear if the candidate is a right fit, or not.

At the bottom of this post, is a link where you can get those questions to use the next time you’re interviewing.
