Recruiting Hungry

by | Dec 13, 2022

We all know it’s a bad idea to grocery shop when you’re feeling hungry.

Self-discipline and good judgement are set aside as your physical desires and emotions tell you to buy food to satisfy those short-term hunger pains.

In a recent podcast, Kevin Castle suggests many hiring managers make poor recruiting choices for the same reasons.

A short-term hiring need blinds them from recognizing and doing what’s best for the team.

How do you know if this is happening to you?

According to Kevin, you’ll…

Short-cut the interview/hiring process. Slowing down keeps you from making stupid mistakes.

Look for reasons to say yes. Overlooking red flags because the prospect has some compelling strengths is unbalanced.

Overlook cultural fit. Successful hiring managers ask for the opinion of others on the team. What do you think of this person?

To keep yourself from getting caught in this trap, do the hard work of creating and maintaining a large and vibrant recruiting database.

Poor prospects don’t look so great when you have lots of other choices.
