+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: How many interviews do you think it should take to hire someone?

  • 1 - 13%
  • 2 - 57%
  • 3 - 25%
  • 4+ - 5%

How many is too many? Often times, companies invite candidates back for more discussions than are necessary. This is usually so everyone feels like they had a say in the decision.  Let's rethink this philosophy. If you have a plan and a process, identifying and getting candidates to clearly explain their experience for those CORE areas should be straight forward and quick. Excessive interviews will turn the right candidates away.
