Want to Hire More Rock Stars this Year? 4 Tips to Help

January 17th, 2017

As the new year approaches, you may be thinking about bringing new talent to your team. But you just don’t want new hires, you want star employees – ones that will propel your entire company towards success. With some guidance and a little extra effort put into your interviewing process, you can find those rock star candidates.

Follow these 4 Tips to Find the Best

Finding star candidates takes more than just posting an open position on popular job sites. It takes looking within your company for inspiration and guidance and even adding an extra step to the traditional interviewing process.

If you’re ready to hire rock star employees to kick off 2017, look at these tips to help you find them!

  1. Get Input from Your Team. Start with getting feedback from your current employees. Ask them for input regarding the responsibilities of the position and the experience they think the new hires should have. Gathering input from your team from the start can help you hire a star employee while truly filling a need of the company.
  2. Ask Role-Specific Questions. When you are interviewing the candidates, ask specific questions about the roles you need them to fulfill. You should also ask them to describe specific examples in their previous job experiences that demonstrate their abilities to fulfill the needs of the position.
  3. Give an Assignment or Test. Growing in popularity is another step to the interviewing process – giving an assignment to demonstrate qualifications and skills in a realistic scenario. After narrowing down some candidates, giving a test to a select few can help you find the rock star you’re looking for.
  4. Don’t Underestimate a Star’s Value or Needs. If you’re looking for the best, you must understand that you also might have competition. A rock star candidate might be looking at other job opportunities. You will need to be fair and competitive in both the salary/compensation and also other benefits like a 401K plan, health insurance, and even vacation/PTO days.

How to Move from a Temp Employee to a Permanent Hire in 2017

January 3rd, 2017

Are you looking to find a great job in 2017? The only thing better than kicking off the new year with a new job is beginning the new year with a job that has the promise to turn into a solid career. When you’re looking for a job, you should consider a temp-to-hire position.

What is Temp-to-Hire?

A temp-to-hire position is a hiring practice that allows companies to make educated hiring decisions. Companies offer potential employees a “trial” period before bringing them on full-time. It’s a similar idea to “try before you buy.” During this time period, the company is able to assess and evaluate job performance.

This temp-to-hire opportunity is also beneficial to you, the prospective employee. You’re able to see the workings of the company and the culture first-hand. Just as they are evaluating your performance, you can also consider how you fit within the company.

How to Find & Convert a Temp-to-Hire Position

Working with a staffing agency is your best way to find temp-to-hire opportunities. They have a pool of client companies who are looking to fill those positions and can help you find a match that is promising for your skills and career goals.

Once you land a temp-to-hire position, it’s time to work hard and prove that you are the right addition to the company. You will be evaluated closely, basically auditioning, for the job. Be yourself of course, and don’t create a false image, but absolutely do your best. Just as you want to excel and perform your best at a permanent job, this is no different. Get to know the team you’re working with, ask questions, collaborate, and meet your deadlines.
