How Do You Pick the Right Person & Close the Deal?
Once you've narrowed down your list, it’s time to get down to business. Recruiters can do nearly everything up to this point, but you still have to meet your final shortlisted candidates. In this stage of interviewing, your stakeholders meet the top candidates to see whether you have a culture & competency fit. Recruiters can help you prep for these or even sit in to help you guide these interviews.
You’re almost there. You’ve found one or two top-shelf candidates who seem like a perfect fit with your team and company. But you need to be sure; folks can talk a great talk during the interview. Do the necessary reference and background checks to make sure they’re able to do the job. You don't want nasty surprises!
It’s not over until the fat lady sings. You may have the perfect candidate, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve found the perfect job. So much can still go wrong. An experienced recruiter can keep your recruitment process from going south at this critical stage.
