Background Checking the Right Applicant

Posted On 7:22 AM by Andrew Calvillo |

Hiring an employee can be difficult because unless you know them personally, it would be hard to assess if they are right for a certain task.

Some employees could have the right attitude and burning desire for the company but lack the expertise, while some employees might have the right skill set but not the right attitude. To find out if an employee can be a good fit for your company, you could conduct background checks and interviews.

Background checks are important because this is where you find out if a prospect had had certain illnesses, been part of a crime, , or done well in school, with his credit, etc., while interviewing him helps you determine a bit of his personality and work ethics.

If you're thinking of hiring a business writer, for example, asking him questions about trends in the economy could show how updated he is in the field as well as help you find out how good he is at explaining different concepts. By listening closely, you'd also be able to determine how good his command over the language is.

Hiring an employee is a decision that you would have to give enough time and attention to, and if he turns out as someone who isn't worth the spot and the pay, then you could end up with a lot of wasted time. Just remember not to be entrapped by how much you like a candidate.
