Hire for the Position

One problem that many interviewers have while interviewing a candidate in a structured interview is that they too often hire a candidate who has similar soft skills and abilities as themselves.  This can work on occasion, but too often, interviewers are not interviewing for a position that needs those traits, and hiring success is far lower than it should be.

“Most interviewers tend to “hire in their own image,” rather than the image that fits the position.

RECOMMENDATION: Interviewers need to understand their own behavioral strengths and weaknesses and the behavioral profile required for the open position before interviewing any candidates. An impatient and hard charging executive, who is interviewing individuals for a customer service position may end up selecting a candidate who is the soft skills mirror image of the executive, rather than hiring a person with the patience and empathy skills required for the position. Later, the executive will often wonder why the employee is often rude and impatient with customers who call looking for a sympathetic ear to hear their complaint and resolve their issue.”

By hiring a candidate who suits the requirments for a position through performance appraisals, employee performance evaluation, and the traits seen through the performance evaluation process it is more likely that the correct candidate will be hired for a position.  By doing this, the job evaluation process will be utilized and the best candidate for the position, not a model of the interviewer, will be hired.
