You Can Better Your Business Success By Hiring People With Experience

Do you have experience in the work position you're offering? Do you know what a person needs to know to work in this position?

If your answer to either question is "no", do you really know how to hire someone for this position? And, finally, do you know how to find out what you need to know to be able to hire for this position?

By the time you finish reading this page you'll have access to information dealing with such issues as:

Understanding how your experience as an employer is important
Understanding what experience the position needs
Finding the people with the Work Experience you need

Discover what successful people in business do to connect with the experienced people they need.

A person's work history can be different from their Work Experience. You can find out that they were often not at work when they were scheduled, arrived late when they did show up and caused a great deal of problems with their supervisors and co-workers.

But - This person can also have the best work related references, for example, that they had the fastest time in completing a project.

This is why it's so important to know a person's Work Experience. And to make a decision about which you need more; a good work history or great Work Experience.

Having good employees is one of the most important parts of the success of any business.

Does your company have a Personnel or Human Resources department? Does it use professional services to recruit new employees? Or do you, the owner and/or manager, do the hiring? Whichever avenue your company/business uses, one key to finding good employees is to find out about their Work Experience. This is easy enough to do by checking references.

But remember - Anyone can look good on paper.

Even if your company/business uses others to find new employees, ultimately you will be the one responsible for training and working with these people. Take the time to meet and speak with each of them.

Educated employers get experienced employees!

The fact that you're in the position of Choosing the Right Employee says you already have a good deal of experience working with people. And that's great!

But - What do you really know about the position you're offering? Do you really know what all is involved in the position? Is this a position you have worked yourself? That you can know when a person applies if they'll be good for the position?

If you have direct experience, great! But if this is a position you have not worked yourself, talk with someone who has worked the position. Make sure you know everything about it before you begin talking to people applying.

(There's nothing wrong with the fact that you don't have the "hands-on" experience, but - The last thing you desire is to let an employee think they have the "upper hand" in your working relationship because they know more than you do about the work in their position.)

Who has the "right stuff"? Write down a series of specific and detailed questions related to the actual work you can ask potential employees. Also, listen very closely to the questions they ask you about the work. You can tell a great deal about what a person knows by the questions they ask.

Depending on the position, you can have a person show you what they know and can do. For example, if you're hiring someone to do alterations on clothing, give them an article to sew.

Use this kind of up front testing whenever possible. (It's true - "Actions speak louder than words")

Look for a level of enthusiasm.

Sometimes when a person has been doing the same kind of work for a long time, they can become bored with the work. This can lead to them not really caring or paying attention to their work. This can cause costly mistakes and your business will suffer if this happens.

But - Don't hire someone just because of their level of enthusiasm.

While it's great to have and see, if it isn't backed up with real Work Experience, it won't stand the test of time.

Bottom line ... It's worth it to take as much time as possible up front Choosing the Right Employee to ensure a good and proper "fit", from all points of view.

Only after spending some time and talking with each person will you know which one of them is "the one" for you.

And, (just as a backup), be sure every new employee understands there is a "try out". A period of time for them to adjust and show what they can do. And that they can do it every day.

Most companies/businesses have a period of 90 days before they make a new employee permanent.
