Sometimes we get amazingly talented candidates applying for roles that, for a variety of reasons, they just aren’t suitable.
When this happens we change our screening questions from “Is this candidate right for this role?” to “Which role is this candidate right for?”.
The first question is “position specific” – can they do the role that my client wants them to do?
The second question is “opportunistic” – where can we refer to this candidate that could add enormous value to one of my clients?
If one of the B Series Consultants gives you a call and says, “I have just interviewed an amazing candidate that I think might be able to add enormous value to your business”, PLEASE take the time to listen to what they have to say.
It may be the introduction to your next Super Star Employee!
