Interviewing Due Diligence

Have you ever made a bad hire? Someone who just did not work out? In a service business, such as yours, putting the right team together can often determine how successful your business will be. And, if you don’t make it a practice to interview each and every potential new employee, you’re doing yourself a disservice.

Interviewing can be tricky – but that’s where this month’s feature article can help. This article tells you, in just two steps, how to conduct interviews for the best possible outcome. We’ve also compiled interviewing do’s and don’ts that should not be overlooked. Click here to read this month’s feature article.
