3_Tips_for_Finding_the_Right_Candidate_for_Your_Open_PositionsIf you're a hiring manager, do you currently have an open position available? If so, there are a number of things that you'll need to do in order to conduct a successful recruitment process and find the right candidate for the role. 

Finding the perfect candidate is imperative. You don't want to hire someone out of desperation. This will just result in the candidate not being the right fit, and you going through the whole recruitment process again.

It's important to hire the right person for the position the first time around. Here are three tips to help you find the right candidate for your position. Read on. 

1. Create a Clear Job Description

You'll need to have a clear description of the position from the get go. Outline the position clearly. State all of the different responsibilities of the role. Once you think you have a firm grasp on a job description, write it out and ask a coworker to proofread it for you. Accuracy is key when it comes to describing a position. 

Without a clear job description, it's likely that you'll attract unqualified candidates.

2. Screen and Interview Candidates

Once you've created a clear job description, and you've posted the advertisement online, the resumes should start flooding in. 

Go through the list of candidates that have applied, and pick your top five that you feel would best suit the role. Then schedule and conduct interviews with these candidates. 

3. Partner with a Staffing Agency
