Interviewing Managers — Tips to choose the best person

So you’ve advertised and interviewed a short list. Your dilemma is - which one to choose for the role. You may need a further tool to decide which candidate will best suit your company’s needs. How about using a relevant questionnaire as a tool ? Here’s how.......

Work out the key criteria that you are seeking in the person and develop a number of written questions relating to that. Ask the short listed candidates if they wouldn’t mind completing the questionnaire and returning it within a few days to help you decide the most suitable candidate. Email the questionnaire to the candidate clearly spelling out your requirements. View the responses and see how this helps you make your final decision as to the most suitable candidate. Apart from the actual responses, you'll discover other valuable skills such as their writing style and grammatical communication, their presentation skills, their ability to complete a task within a short time frame, their willingness to take further steps to achieve the job etc… it's an invaluable tool !

A sample of how to develop questions:

Sample 1
Key Recruiting Criteria: Ability to adjust as a leader within a changing environment.
Question: In your current role, how have you adjusted your leadership style to manage the business and its people in a constantly changing environment ?

Sample 2
Key Recruiting Criteria: Ability to encourage a positive culture within the team.
Question: What are some techniques that you have used successfully to effectively mentor and nurture staff ?

Watch this technique work for you to help you decide the best person !!

This tip has been gladly brought to you by the White Now Wizard !

Suppliers — Advertise more effectively !

Suppliers, are you used to advertising only in magazines or through mail outs ?

These ads are seen once only by the reader for a VERY short amount of time ! If you advertise through a Banner (Hot Spot) on the White Now website, your ad is continually seen by the viewer every time they log on. With 730,000 hits a month, the White Now viewers are returning daily to look at the site. Do magazine readers return daily to look at the magazine ? Which method of advertising do you think is more effective AND cheaper ? Call Corina the Grinner on 0415 249 131 or email corina@whitenow.com.au to get the low down !
