- History of success – Have they been successful in almost everything they have done? Some people have it in their ‘DNA’ to be successful in everything they do.
The Past=The Future (when it comes to hiring).
- Skillset match – Have they performed the same duties/tasks of your opening in their past?
- Accountability – Have they demonstrated proof that they have successfully performed the similar goals and accountabilities in the past that you have in your opening? E.g. they have previously grown a medical practice before from seeing 10 patients/day to 25 patients/day.
- Company culture match – Does their previous company culture align with your company culture? E.g. they have worked for companies that micromanage employees and your new opening is a very independent position.
