Identifying a Top Candidate

Identifying a Top Candidate

As a staffing firm, it’s essential to bring in the best candidates to your clients. Companies are looking for smart, talented, and adaptable individuals with experience in their industry.  As you seek to hire top candidates, it’s also important to stay protected with an Employment Practices Liability policy.

According to an article on Monster, when reaching out to potential candidates, as a staffing firm, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. A well-rehearsed interviewee. The best interviews are the ones that are perfected and polished. However, sounding the same as the rest won’t get you far. A great candidate will have balance with their questions and actively listen for cues from the interviewer.
  1. Pick a candidate that has a genuine interest in the company’s initiatives and has passion in the duties they will be required to do. A company wants their prospective employee to have the same values and show awareness of the company’s goals and performance.
  1. Focus on finding someone who can easily adapt to an industry. Also, look to find someone with truthful answers and an open mindset. A great candidate is one that is teachable and optimistic.
