Hiring Experienced Vs. Inexperienced Employees

Hiring Experienced Vs. Inexperienced Employees

Hiring Experienced Vs. Inexperienced Employees

When you post a new job for your company, you expect to spend lots of time reviewing resumes. You’re looking to see which applicants meet most of your qualifications.

No applicant will ever match up perfectly with your job description. Some will fall woefully short and others will exceed making you question why they applied. Most applicants fall somewhere in between. Do you hire a more experienced applicant or do you hire a less experienced one?

Experience

It’s true that hiring experienced employees means you don’t have to teach the basics. There’s generally less of a ramp up period where they learn what’s happening and many times, more experienced hires are quicker to catch on.

On the other hand, hiring someone with little experience means you have a longer training period and can’t expect as much out of them as quickly. However, you’re starting with a clean slate which means you can mold this new hire the way you see fit.

Crafting the Right Job Description

Crafting the Right Job Description

Crafting the Right Job Description

Whether your company is needing to hire for a new position or expanding, you want to attract top talent. Don’t overlook the importance of the job description.

Your job description should be the first step in weeding out candidates.

Job Title

When people are searching for jobs, they use keywords. If those keywords don’t appear in your job title, qualified candidates might miss your job posting. This may seem like an easy part to create. You may want to be creative with your job title but doing this could severely limit your candidate pool.

Be direct with your job title instead to attract qualified candidates.

Use Enticing Language

Creating an official job description is important. But that’s not what you want to use to attract candidates.

Setting Realistic Staffing Goals

Setting Realistic Staffing Goals

Setting Realistic Staffing Goals

Hiring new staff is a challenge for even the most seasoned business owner. Creating a job description that catches the eye of qualified candidates, taking the time to review resumes and conduct interviews, all while managing to run your business is a taxing experience.

No matter what, you must make time to set out your hiring goals. If you don’t do that, you risk making a seemingly good hire but at the wrong time.

Setting Your Goals

Goal setting is important in all aspects of business. And there’s no place for a complacent approach to your hiring strategy. Setting hiring goals and keeping up with industry trends allows you to make the right hire at the right time.

You have to realize that you can’t hire everyone tomorrow. Finding the right employees takes time and effort. Being realistic helps. If you need to hire a dozen new employees in varying positions this year, that can appear overwhelming. But not when you break it down by quarter or even by month. Giving yourself realistic expectations can increase your chances of hitting your staffing goals.

When to Terminate an Employee

When to Terminate an Employee

As the employer, you have to make the difficult decision of when to terminate an employee who no longer serves you or your company’s needs. Below are some warning signs of when to terminate an employee.

Bad Behavior

Your company has rules. Those rules are in place to make sure employees do their job professionally, both in their interaction with clients and with colleagues.

Sometimes employees have poor tempers and can act unprofessional. When you see these actions, you must respond immediately. Have discussions with them to correct their behavior. You document these interactions and nothing changes. If you have provided several opportunities for the employee to correct their behavior and they have not done so, it’s time to cut ties.
