Hiring the Right Person for the Job

Think you've found your dream candidate? Get a second opinion before hiring.

Hiring is a subjective process that is based on lots of soft information and your intuition. Try to have at least one other person interview your final candidates. A third party's fresh perspective may surprise you.
