Hiring can be an incredibly challenging process when your needs are niche and your candidate pool is slim. Best to use a digital interviews application page where candidates can begin the application process 24/7 whenever the right candidate ends up coming your way.
The most talented candidates are only available for a fleeting moment of time before they are bombarded with employers eager to hire them. If this hiring situation is similar to what you are experiencing in any of the specialized positions you are recruiting for, we’d recommend starting with 5-10 question “written” interview application (really a web form). Then, immediately follow it by auto-advancing candidates to a one-way video interview to jumpstart the process, capture their attention, and begin the interviewing process.
Yet, it can still be “tough going” when the business needs demand a speedy hire but the market of candidates is slim. So, here are some inspirational quotes to begin your day as you finish the week strong in your quest for placing top talent.
Hiring Challenges: Inspirational Quotes
Pick-me-up quote #1: “I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people. At the end of the day you bet on people, not on strategies,” says Lawrence Bossidy, former CEO of Honeywell International. We stand with Larry on this. If the way you spend your day is hiring and developing people, know that every top-notch hire you make is one that makes your company stronger.
Pick-me-up quote #2: “Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for the love of it,” says Henry David Thoreau, in Life without Principle. Remember the hires you’ve made where compensation, although a factor, was nowhere near the largest factor? The hires where the content of the job, the opportunity to grow, and the character of the hiring team were the dominating factors? May you find more hires like that today.
