How to Choose Between Two Strong Job Candidates

Posted by SelectOne

In some ways, it’s a dream scenario: having multiple highly qualified candidates who are both applying for a job within your company. During a candidate-driven marketplace, when there tend to be more positions open than there are people to fill them, this situation becomes less common, and so you may have less practice over the past few years with making the hard decision between two great candidates.

Best Practices for Screening Sales Candidates

Posted by SelectOne

Hiring is never exactly a walk in the park, but hiring salespeople is strangely nerve-wracking to many. For many roles, it’s a simple matter to screen out unqualified candidates. Can they work out a coding problem on a whiteboard? Can they proofread a memo for grammatical errors? Can they prep vegetables in the allotted time without violating any health code standards?

Posted by SelectOne

The role of COO is a unique one. On one hand, they tackle the everyday operational side of the business that the CEO can’t. On the other hand, it’s often a title used in succession planning, grooming the individual in question to take on the CEO role one day.
