Hiring a new employee is a big decision for businesses of any size. Whether it’s your first hire or your hundredth, there are numerous factors that need to be considered before sending a job offer to a candidate.
This monumental task is made even more difficult by the conflicting advice hiring managers receive. Are job hoppers bad hires because they’re disloyal, or should they be hired for their well-roundedness? Should you ignore résumés without any direct industry experience, or give those individuals the chance to start their careers? Do you set aside a decent candidate in the hope that your perfect employee will apply for the job?
