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.

Which Jobs Provide an Option for Work-Life Balance?

December 20th, 2016

If you’re looking for a job that allows you to exercise the sought-after work-life balance, here is a list of the top 10 jobs you should consider. The jobs are categorized but are in no particular rank.

The first category is made up of jobs that are more technical, solitaire jobs. Yes, you’ll have to work with people, but most interaction will be with software systems, computers, and there’s a greater possibility to work remotely.

Research Engineer – Research engineers apply their expertise and knowledge to technical projects, finding innovative, cost-effective means to improve research, techniques, procedures, and/or products and technologies.

Devops Engineer – DevOps (a compound of development and operations) emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes.

Mobile Application Developer – Mobile application developer is a person who creates, tests, and programs mobile applications for end-users.

User Interface Designer – User interface (UI) designers are responsible for how the product is laid out. They are in charge of designing each screen or page of user interaction and ensures that the UI visually communicates the path that a UX (user experience) designer has laid out.

Data Scientist – A Data scientist is someone who makes value out of data. Responsibilities typically include creating various machine learning-based tools or processes within the company, such as recommendation engines or automated lead scoring systems. People within this role should also be able to perform statistical analysis.

The second category of jobs includes positions that would require more person-to-person collaboration, working with a team, and would require more time in an office or in meetings.

Technical Account Manager – Technical account managers are the people responsible for managing all the technical aspects of a company’s relationship with its clients. Their job description involves them working closely with the business and sales account management team in order to win new business and increase sales.

Recruiting Coordinator – Recruiting coordinators are responsible for attracting candidates, evaluating resumes, scheduling and conducting interviews and managing the hiring paperwork. They have a thorough knowledge of HR best practices and have innovative ideas.

Strategy Manager – A strategic manager helps top leadership establish and prioritize business objectives that align the company with opportunities and protect it from unwarranted risks. These managers use analytical and problem-solving skills to build roadmaps to lead the company toward gaining a sustainable competitive advantage.

User Experience Designer – User experience (UX) designers have a very good understanding of technology, business goals, and psychology. Their main task is to conduct user research, interviews, and surveys, and then use the gathered information to create sitemaps, wireframes, and prototypes.

Corporate Recruiter – The corporate recruiter is responsible for more than just finding great talent to fill one position; they must also write job descriptions, screen resumes, interview candidates, extend job offers, implement onboarding strategies and keep accurate records of all candidates and new hires.
