1 know your applicants
#1 –Know your applicants

Four categories of applicants:

  • Strongest contenders
  • Solid, reliable middle group
  • Do not considers
  • “Fighting for my life group”

warning signs for applicants with 3 or more of the following
Warning signs for applicants with 3 or more of the following:
  • Tricks- applies with alias email addresses or abbreviated names
  • Have had many interviews, no offers
  • References do not include any past supervisors
  • Hide their true job titles
  • Hide dates of employment
  • They will call their termination a lay-off (may have been told this)
  • They were the only one laid off at their company or department
  • Say everything you want to hear, but it does not align with their background or attitude
  • Way over qualified but really “want” to work for so much less
  • Worked at one employer for a long period of time and have not found employment in the last few years
  • Present strategies to convince you that they are adaptable to a job they have never held
  • Use the word “desperate” at any point

2 reference checking
#2- Reference Checking
  • Must include past supervisors or managers
  • Understand the work environment you are contacting. Compare what is acceptable and not acceptable.
  • UC rates are hitting the roof. Past employers feedback could be affected

3 emotional hiring decisions
#3-Emotional Hiring Decisions
  • Compatibility can cloud decisions
  • Unconscious decisions
  • A ghost from your past


  • Solid job description
  • Deal breakers
  • Assure you are not defending your decisions

4 strategic job descriptions
#4- Strategic Job Descriptions

Your company has a vision and that vision requires employees to make it happen.

4 strategic job descriptions continued
#4- Strategic Job Descriptions- continued

Employees need direction and clarity to make your vision happen.

Set up your employees for success! Update descriptions on a regular basis.

5 deal breakers
#5- Deal Breakers

To best avoid hiring mistakes and emotional hiring decisions

  • 2-4 deal breakers max
  • Include: Knowledge, skills, experiences, attitude
  • Realistic
  • Willing to walk away, no matter what, if the candidate does not meet
  • Skills that are not easily trainable

6 unrealistic expectations
#6- Unrealistic Expectations

If time is elapsing you may need to re-think.

  • Is this time lapse costing us increased revenues
  • Take a deep breathe and re-think- “for” vs. “against” training someone with the right attitude & ability to learn your needed skill

7 undertrained hiring managers
#7- Undertrained hiring managers

Playing with tens of thousands of dollars when one doesn’t really know what they are doing……NOT A GREAT IDEA!

1. Train your hiring managers

2. Outsource

3. See #1 or #2

8 listen to your gut
#8- Listen to your Gut
  • Your gut is a valuable source of knowledge consisting of all of your years of experiences
  • An internal warning system for something you cannot see yet
  • Trust your instincts & perform due diligence no matter what
  • Determine your source for concern
  • Eliminate having to silently curse the fact that you didn’t listen to your internal intelligence

those are the 8 biggest hiring mistakes of 2010
Those are the 8 biggest hiring mistakes of 2010!
