With websites like LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, and Indeed, you'd think it would be easy for companies to find top talent. In 2019, the job search process has been largely digitized, and, seemingly, a lot has changed when it comes to the way hiring is done.But I've found that for the most senior-level recruitment projects, the keys to success haven't changed all that much. Fundamentally, the real reason you are hiring in the first place is to further your company's mission while prioritizing its people.Advertisement
With all the job boards out there, finding candidates with mediocre fit has never been easier. But it hasn't really gotten any easier when you're hiring for key positions. The difference between the right candidate and the available candidate can still make or break a company's future.
At Rosenzweig & Company, we've helped companies find CEOs that brought them back from the brink. I've spent the last 20 years recruiting and researching top talent. In my experience, it is crucial to prioritize clear and concise hiring criteria to find the right candidate for the right set of circumstances. Here are the four questions to consider when making key hires.
1. Can your company benefit from an industry outsider?
2. Does the candidate have transferable skills?Advertisement
3. How well does the candidate fit into your company culture?
4. How strong is the candidate's work loyalty?Advertisement
