Interviewing Job Candidates

Dale Kardasz, a St. Louis franchise owner of PrideStaff, offers the following advice for interviewing job candidates:
Here are a few of the things we do to find the best candidates.
1. Spend time with the person. Sit down and have a general conversation with the person and observe if any negative or positive traits surface as the person becomes more relaxed.
2. Have someone present for the interview from the department in which you have the opening. Let that person and the candidate talk "nuts and bolts.” Especially in industries that tend to use a lot of acronyms. Observe the candidate to see if he or she struggles talking specifics about the industry.
3. If the candidate lists awards and accomplishments, have them bring in the proof. Remember the Notre Dame football coach, who was hired a few years ago, who did not have the actual degrees he listed.
