Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

If relevant, ask employees to send samples of their work with their resumes or to bring them to the interview. Another technique: Ask them to complete a project similar to the actual work they'd be doing (and pay them for it). This gives you a strong indication of how they would perform on the job...and gives them a clear picture of what you expect from them.
