3 Pre-Hiring Necessary Steps:

  3. Conduct Multiple Interviews. 

My Takeaways:

  1. Make sure to dig deep into your potential hire’s past and acquire as much relevant information as possible on the prospect. 
  2. Ask the right questions when calling references. How would they fit into our culture? Are they a team player? 
  3. Don’t be overtaken by one performance. See the prospect play several times, feel him out before you make a decision.
