Seven Rules for Hiring Extraordinary Talent: A Business Story

Book Description

Have you ever hired someone whom you never should have hired in the first place? If your answer is "Yes", you're not alone. Few hiring managers have been taught to hire successfully. Since hiring is a decision that will have a huge impact on a company's most important assets—its employees—leaving hiring to chance seems unreasonable. There is no magic in making good hiring decisions; it's a skill anyone can learn. In Seven Rules for Hiring Extraordinary Talent, the author brings his thirty years of experience working with companies to find, select and hire key employees to life. The Seven Rules outlines the most common mistakes in hiring he has observed and noted, and will show the reader how to avoid these mistakes. Told as a business story for effective and enjoyable reading, Seven Rules will serve as a guide for anyone involved in the hiring process. Ignore these rules at your peril, because they can be expensive!
