Key Take-Aways

  • Try to change in-person interviews to phone interviews or virtual calls.

  • References serve two purposes: first, one last chance to identify red flags; two, demonstrate specific skills in certain areas.

  • To increase the number of applicants to a position, send the information to social media, not for people to apply directly but to redirect them to the position’s landing page.

  • Reach out to people in the schools that pertain to the industry you work in to find candidates.

  • Give yourself more time to get a bigger pool of applicants for a position.

  • Have other people you work with be part of the interview process so you, as the decision-maker, can get different points of view.
