In today’s current recruitment market, employers may find that the number of applications they receive for each position overwhelms them. The more applications that are received can make it more difficult to find the ideal employee, so here are a few tips to help you find exactly who you are looking for:
Find the best
Look through CVs for evidence of promotions, awards and other indicators that a person has excelled. Candidates who have stayed with one employer for a long time can also hint towards stability and loyalty, as well as an employee with whom the employer was happy.
Seek out the eager
People who can demonstrate that they are willing to do what it takes to get the job they want are a great find. Look for people who have completed courses and filled any time between employment either by taking courses to improve their qualifications or by volunteering.
Look beyond the experience
While experience is great, it is not the only thing that defines the perfect candidate. The ability to work well with others, as well as be able to work on their own initiative, is essential for most jobs, so look for anything that will demonstrate these abilities.
Trust your instincts
When it comes to hiring, instinct can play an important role, perhaps more of an important role than many people give it credit. Trust yours when interviewing.
