Already have a small business but thinking about hiring new staff? Here are some helpful questions that will help you decide who the best fit is for your company.

Once you have established your business, having an outstanding staff is essential for it to be successful.

Hiring employees is one of the most important tasks for a business owner. But how do you know who is the right person for the position? Who will bring the most into the company? Who will make the business succeed to your expectations? Anyone can put on a good act for 30 minutes and try to sell themselves as someone that will be the best fit, but how can we tell?

Here are some good questions that will help you see beyond the candidate’s responses:
  • Give an example of a time when you had to make a quick decision.
  • Give an example of a situation when you exceeded your manager’s expectations
  • What have you done that demonstrates your willingness to succeed in a job?
  • How would you convince me that you can adapt to a wide range of people, situations and environments.
  • Why should I hire you??
Remember: your business is only as good as your people.
