Interviewing and hiring new employees can be a daunting process. You need to find and hire individuals who will be productive members of your team.

A bad hire can negatively affect your team and the overall company. Not only is there a financial cost to the hiring process, but a bad hire can also contribute to a dip in staff morale and productivity. From a financial perspective, a bad hire can cost, on average, at least one-third of that position’s first-year wages.

In addition to the responsibility of choosing the right candidate, many hiring managers are stressed by the actual process of chatting with strangers to evaluate their skills and abilities. If you’re new to the interviewer’s side of the table or have had prior bad experiences, the interview process may seem like a complicated and difficult maze to navigate, but it doesn't need to be.
