The Art of Recruiting

More good stuff from Guy…this time on recruiting talent to your organization.

I like all the points he makes sans the hard sell of the prospective candidate…the pull-out all the stops tactic. Rather, have the candidate interview as many people within your company and maybe even a client or two to see how great you really are.

Part of the problem (no, THE problem) with the hiring process is all the selling that is going on by both sides. Ask questions…shut-up, listen and take notes. If you hear something that raises a red flag, ask more questions about it. And, by all means, tell the truth…about everything. If you don’t, they’ll find out anyway.
