We all know what a headache it can be to hire someone new. It makes it even more difficult when it’s someone who you are planning to put on a specific task for a temporary amount of time. Here is a good place to start; make a list of minimum requirement expectation. This way, when you are reviewing resumes and considering applicants you can narrow down the list initially by who holds the minimum requirements.
Next, let your salary expectation be known from the start. This will eliminate any potential applicants who require more or less for their services.
Another helpful factor in choosing your ideal employee would be to find out why they think they are the best fit for the job. Find out why they think they can provide better work for you than any other applicant. This will provide some true insight on their integrity, work ethic, and vision for the job.
