Attracting the right candidates
Meeting Mr/Ms Right is usually not an easy job for most people, the same goes to hiring Mr/Ms/Mrs Right for your company.
If you pay close attention to the details of your hiring process with some strategic planning and candidate evaluation process, it can significantly increase your chances in hiring the right person for your company.
The extra time and efforts spent in the hiring process for the right fit is much more efficient than spending it on trying to adjust or fix the wrong candidates to make them fit in their roles and your company’s work culture and in the end, your efforts will most likely go wasted.
In many companies, this is the usual steps of hiring process:
1) Post a job advertisement 2) Check candidates’resume and shortlist some candidates for an interview 3) Hire or keep on looking

For HR practitioners, we have to be very clear about “Why should they join us?” and ” What makes us stand out from other employers?” It means that the recruitment and interview process should not be just about “Why we should hire you?”but it should be about creating a positive experience for your candidates to remember your company and be enthusiastic to join in and excited to contribute to the success of your company.
