3 Things You Must Never Do When Hiring


When you’re hiring for your business, there are all kinds of things you can do to make sure you end up with the right candidate. Somebody who has the qualities that you really want and fits in with your company culture. However, there are 3 things you absolutely must never do when hiring. Take a look below and get an idea of what they are:

1. Discriminate

Discrimination, whether for somebody’s sex or skin color, does still happen. You can’t discriminate because of these things, nor can you discriminate because of things like age, sexual orientation, etc. You need to give everybody a fair chance and be open to hiring the best candidate whatever those circumstances are – but hopefully, you already know and believe that.

2. Look For The Wrong Things

Before you start interviewing, you should have a very good idea of what you want in a candidate, but you should also remain flexible – what if your candidate is a great match for the culture and the role in other ways, but has very little experience? It’s important to consider just how essential some things you’re asking for are, so you don’t rule anybody out for poor reasons.

3. Fail To Structure The Interview Process

Structuring the interview process will mean everybody is interviewed the same way and has a fair chance. Have the questions you want to ask written down, as well as who else will be involved in the process.

Below, you’ll find 7 essential recruitment steps so you know what you actually should do when hiring!
