How to Avoid a Big Hiring Mistake

Posted on: August 6th, 2013 by staffnetinc

A big hiring mistake can cost a business enormous sums and hamper its activities, meaning that it is important for businesses to avoid them as much as possible. For the most part, businesses can avoid big mistakes so long as they have a plan in mind and thoroughly evaluate their candidates.Avoid hiring mistakes

Here are three important tips to remember in hiring employees:

  • It is essential that the recruiter understands the duties and responsibilities of the position to be filled. Understanding the position means that the recruiter is in a better position to understand the kind of people best suited to fill the position. Of course, it is also important that recruiters communicate their intentions to potential candidates in a clear and concise manner.

 

  • Spend the time to evaluate candidates. Interview them through the phone, interview them face-to-face, and use these opportunities to figure out their personalities. Make sure that candidates can either fit into the business or learn to fit into the business.

 

  • The recruiter should never hesitate to consult others during the hiring position. Speaking to someone in the same position can lend the recruiter valuable insight into the characteristics of the ideal candidate.

Within the first few seconds of meeting you, your new coworkers will be forming an opinion of you. Make sure that first impression is as good as possible in order to create a positive workplace atmosphere by following these tips.

  • THINK ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL APPEARANCE. Not only must you ensure that you conform to the company dress code, you should also be aware that your choice of clothing reflects your personality and style. If the work environment is casual, do not wear a suit; however, if you are unsure about what to wear remember that being overdressed is better than being underdressed.
  • PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BODY LANGUAGE. If you are nervous, try not to show it as you may come across as introverted or disinterested.
  • AVOID TALKING ABOUT YOURSELF TOO MUCH. It is common to take over the conversation without meaning to do so. Spend your first day trying to get to know your coworkers, learning their names, and finding out some basic information about them instead of speaking mostly about yourself.

3 Staffing Agency Myths Debunked

Posted on: June 10th, 2013 by staffnetinc

Due to misunderstandings about the purpose and function of job staffing and recruiting firms, many people are missing out on a chance to boost their career as well as seek a new position on a confidential basis. Job seekers often believe that they can do better by looking for work on their own. Following are the top three myths about staffing agencies debunked plus more.Staffing Agency Myths Debunked

  • YOU HAVE TO PAY A FEE TO USE STAFFING AGENCIES. Reputable firms do not charge candidates anything for their services. Firms make their income from their client companies when they fill a job opening.
  • STAFFING FIRMS ARE ONLY SUITABLE FOR ENTRY LEVEL JOBS. Agencies offer jobs at all levels of experience from entry level to executive. Many find employees for all types of businesses, while others specialize in a particular industry. Staffing firms also often have confidential job opportunities as well. These are positions you would not be aware of but through a reputable staffing firm.
  • STAFFING FIRMS WILL TALK YOU INTO A ROLE YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN. Recruiting firms guarantee their placements. It does not behoove them to talk anyone into a role they don’t anticipate will be long term. They also want to provide the best service possible to their hiring clients to maintain that business relationship. And don’t forget, Recruiters are always looking for good referral candidates and a happy candidate will send their friends their way.
  • STAFFING AGENCIES ONLY OFFER TEMPORARY JOBS. Some staffing firms specialize in permanent placements and some temporary. Some firms do both but usually their expertise is one or the other. Be sure to let your staffing recruiter know what type of position you are seeking and what their specialty is.
