Hello Everyone, For those who are entrepreneurs and HR managers, I will like to share some important things to consider when looking for a new employee to fill any vacant position. I will breakdown this process into three- -Planning and Research Having the right plans is very important for the hiring process. To be honest more time and energy should be spent in this process for it to be successful. Some thing to consider at this stage include, Examining the job description, your budget, Law consideration etc. -Personality Evaluation This is the final preparatory stage before the final interview. This stage is where you put all your findings into proper context by creating an evaluating system. This evaluating system should consist of a list of personality traits (experience, education, leadership qualities etc), and applicant evaluation sheet (for the interview). -Interview Interviews are design to get the feel of the real applicant than what is in his or her resume. These are some of the important considerations during the interview process. -The questions being asked. (Ensure that most of the questions asked are open ended (not yes or no) so as to keep the applicant talking.) -Considering the applicant attitude as a whole. (The way the applicant sits and stands, the interaction with other applicant etc) -Observe applicant answers to questions. -Give room for the applicant to ask questions. Taking the above steps will make your work force very productive.
