How to Tell if a Candidate's Skills Fit Your Role

This is the seventh in a series of ten posts on hiring candidates for characteristics linked to high performance. Each post focuses on a key candidate trait, why it matters and how recruiters can develop processes to correctly and fairly evaluate for it.

So far, we’ve covered the science of first impressions, the important difference between hiring for personality versus character, how to hire candidates committed for the long haul, how to find and hire motivated candidates, how hiring teams can find and hire talent committed to collaboration, and how to identify and hire passionate candidates.

This post will look at how your hiring process can accurately and sustainably identify candidates with the right skills for your roles.

Driving an Engineering Culture with Collaboration

Culture is more than just the games we play, and what we eat and drink together. Those things are easy to see.

Time to fill is a metric you come up against, and having it hang over your head is enough to pressure you into trying to close every candidate. But sometimes, you’ve got to play the long game.
