To ensure you maximize the success with hiring the right person, follow your company’s established hiring practices. Invest sufficiently in the interview process – test the candidate’s analytical and industry or business expertise, as well as soft skills and cultural fit. You can split the interview into two parts – technical/business questions and behavior interview that focuses on testing soft skills and the candidate’s emotional intelligence. Develop a list of interview questions in advance. If you are interviewing a lot of candidate for a position, or when the candidate is located in a different region, use phone interview for screening.
