Be your best...


Being good at a job depends in large part on being a good person and doing the right thing as often as possible: in many cases, the “right” thing is regularly coming to work and caring a lot about it.  Many recruiters focus too much on whether an applicant “can” do the job they’re applying for: I think it’s equally important and effective to determine whether they “want to and will”.  Don’t just look at their work history: learn ways to discover whether they have the values and integrity to really be the kind of employee you really want and need. While values like these are more difficult to discern, there are several validated assessments I’m aware of that can do just that: I think the best one’s test for general optimism, commitment, and flexibility. Don’t be afraid to supplement the work being done by your hiring managers with some tools and training to improve their efforts today.
