The hiring process can be frustrating and expensive. The best way to ensure you are hiring the best person for the job is to prioritize your needs and wants in a candidate. Sure, we all want to hire that cool person who makes a great first impression, has a stellar personality, and is instant friends with everyone. But is that really what your company needs? Maybe the quiet, introspective candidate would be a better fit for the objectives of the position, work team, or customer base. Determining the differences between your company’s needs and wants is the key. Start by evaluating your current team and top performers in the position.
