We’ve spent the last several years interviewing hundreds of potential employees and assistants, both in the US and abroad, and we’ve learned a ton through our experiences. Much like sales, there is a funnel that potential interviews must go through that helps to qualify or dis-qualify them to work for you. In our experience, the best thing you can do is limit your involvement on the front-end when qualifying new candidates and reserve most of your time and energy for those that have made it through the gauntlet and have passed all of the mini-tests you have put in place.
This episode is critical for anyone that is looking to expand their team through either onshore or offshore hiring as it will step you through a systematic process of disqualification that will save you a ton of time trying to find the “right” employees or VA’s. There’s no guarantee for success here, but we can assure you that this process will focus your time on those that are well-qualified and give you a better opportunity to build a super-sharp team of people.
