Interviewing can be an organization’s lifeblood or its downfall. If you think you don’t have to develop good interviewing skills because your people would never leave then you are SADLY mistaken. Things happen. People do occasionally leave for one reason or another, regardless of what kind of environment you have developed. Hopefully they are far and few in between but mark my words, it will happen. The more skills you develop to discern who would be a good fit and who would be a better fit somewhere else the easier your life becomes.
Good employees are an organization’s biggest asset. Bad ones are its biggest liability. The dangerous factor is if you hire the WRONG person, it can go unrealized for many months (in my experience 6 months to a year). All the money, time and training you invest into that single wrong hire adds up very quickly. In most organizations the training alone will cost around $7000. That’s a lot of money. Not to mention all the invariables that accompanies bringing in the wrong person. Unfortunately I have to admit, I’ve made some bad hires. I’m not perfect. Looking back I want to slap myself because the signs where so obvious. How could I not see what I was getting? Hindsight is 20/20. But you live and learn and that’s why I’m here for you. If you can learn from someone else’s experience, you can avoid all the heartache and implement what really works. Spend less time spinning your wheels and get some traction with finding the right person.
