What Employers are Thinking
Category : Other Stuff
I wanted to share this good advice I found from allbusiness.com. It’s important to know what employers are thinking when applying for a job. Think about what they are looking for, and how you can help them fill those needs.
What do you think? Do you have any other advice for employers?
Interviewing Prospective Employees
The reason you are interviewing is because you have a need in your business that can only be met by hiring another employee. Your objective when interviewing prospective employees should always be to hire the best possible candidate for the job. Ideas for making this process go smoothly include:
* Create a job description that identifies the most important qualifications your ideal candidate should possess. Include salary and benefit information.
* Collect resumes of prospective employees through such avenues as employment agencies, trade journals, newspapers, the Internet, and through networking. Go through the resumes and select the ones with the best qualifications.
* Be prepared with questions to ask during the actual interview. Review the information listed on the resume to verify its accuracy. Listen carefully to how each person answers your questions, and observe if they have a positive and professional attitude.
* Before making your final selection, let representatives of the franchisor or some of your key employees (particularly those who would be working with the new employee) interview the candidate. Dont rush your decision. Choosing the best person for the job is important to the success of your business.
