Hire to Your Weaknesses
Newsletter volume 1 number 3
We recently spoke at a national convention where attendees in our interviewing skills workshop had the choice of several other sessions at the same time. We asked one of the early arrivals why he decided to come to our session. He said, "I once had a boss who advised me to hire to my weaknesses, meaning hire those who have strengths I don't have. I thought that was good advice and now I'm in a position to hire others and I want some techniques on how to do more than hire my mirror image."
Trainers love participants with that attitude because they already know that interviewing is something you do for the rest of your career.
