How To Hire For Skills And Less For Industry Experience

Ready to Find Your Next Star Performer?

Hiring someone to work in your company is a big decision. You want to make sure that you are getting the right person for the job. Just because someone has previously done a job or has experience in certain areas, doesn’t mean that they are the right fit for that area of your business.

There are some things that you can look for and do to help make sure you are fitting the right person to the right area of your business. That way you are hiring someone for the skills that they are good at instead of just their experience in the industry. Let’s dive into some of the benefits of hiring in this manner.

Don’t Hire On Bias Standards

It is easy to believe that a man specifically or a woman specifically will fit a certain job best. While you should be hiring on the skills that the individual has and not by the sex that they are. When you hire an individual this way, you are going to get someone who can accomplish the job better.

Don’t Focus So Much On Degrees
Hiring someone to fill a position that you have available is stressful at times. You are nervous to make the wrong choice in a person. When you are advertising for a job position, but more of the focus on their abilities and training. Not so much on their degrees in college. Many people have the right qualifications and certifications, without a bachelor’s degree.

Look Beyond Job Titles
The job that people are hired for sometimes fits them well and sometimes it doesn’t. That’s because many people hire without thinking about their true skills and just based on their experiences. With recent experience with the pandemic, people are far more capable of more jobs.

You Will Benefit More
Focusing more on the skills that an individual has is going to benefit your business more in the long run. People are going to enjoy what they do on a whole new level as well. You will see that your business will flourish more and it is also going to save you money.

Many people lost their jobs over the past year during the pandemic of Covid-19, forcing businesses to expand their employees’ job titles. Having to move to smaller amounts of staff. This gave the paternity to expand people’s experience and skills.
