The hiring manager’s goal is, seemingly, simple: find an employee who matches your needs culture-wise, skills-wise, and experience-wise. Obviously, defining this goal is way easier than actually doing it. Hiring managers should define their precise hiring requirements, take part in interviews, and create a home assignment for candidates. After this whole process, they provide a retro look to improve the hiring process.

Absurdly, most hiring managers lack this expertise, although it’s necessary. They specialize in their field – marketing, R&D, sales, design, whatever – and not in an HR issue such as hiring, although it’s an integral part of the job.

In this episode, we answer a few questions around how hiring managers can become stronger at one of the most crucial aspects of their role: hiring the right person. How can hiring managers become better at one of the most crucial aspects of their role? How can you write down an appropriate scorecard that’ll guide you along the way? And why the professor we talked to think that defining the needs in the very early stages is a little bit like buying furniture? We answered it all.
