Empty titleHiring Mistake #6: Interview FAILURE - Acting Skills Don’t Correlate to On-The-Job Success | Hire Top Talent | Scoop.it

One of the greatest mistakes in hiring occurs when we observe how well someone interviews as an actor or actress - not good of an employee will they be in our unique culture.

Barry Deutsch's insight:

Stop evaluating candidates in interviews based on their acting skills. Sometimes the best actors/actresses are not the best performers. Sometimes candidates who don't "perform" well in the interview, turn out to be your best employees. As a hiring manager or executive - how do you avoid making these classic mistakes?

Hire and Retain Top Talent | Hire Top Talent | Scoop.it

Do you Google candidates before you interview them? Do you check out their on-line "personas?" Do their pictures, comments, profiles convey the type of person you want to hire for your culture and values?

Barry Deutsch's insight:

Do you have a horror story you would like to share of how the actor/actress from the interview was different from their on-line persona?
