- Understand what the client looking for :
understanding customer needs is the center of every successful business ,you have to know which criteria the client looking for and what’s the job description and requirements for any position he want to hire to stop wasting time and get the best quality of candidates .
- Draft the job application :
After you identify the customer needs you will have to put a plan to know from where and how you will get our candidate and may be you will need to make salary survey to know the salary range of this position .
- Searching :
There are many different sources to find what you want like (social media, ads in news papers, referrals and websites that specialize in hiring and according the position you want ,if you looking for white collar you will search on social media and internet and if you looking for blue collar you will have to work on referrals and ads in newspaper etc.
- screening over the phone :
After searching you will get numbers of cv’s and there’s matched and other is not or overqualified so you will have to screen over the phone to make sure that there’s nothing fake about their profile or cv and to keep this candidate stand by for another call to make an appointment of the interview if he match the requirements .
- make short list
you will need to make short listed to the accepted candidates after the screening and get another batch in case one of the candidates cancel or he isn’t interested or get better offer .
- interviewing face to face
after you have called the candidates in the short listed try to don’t go beyond two weeks when you make an appointment of the interview to reduce the no show , and the interview will be separated for 2 parts the first we called psychometric personality and the second called technical cause as i said before we are care of quality more than quantity .
