Preparing to Hire
We often see a Company that is desperate to hire, desperate to alleviate some of the pressing work that keeps piling up and up untouched by the already over worked staff. Large shadow hung eyes look at us as the recruiter as if we are about to solve all the problems that are heaped in a tower behind the hiring manager like the leaning tower of Pisa!
And this exact situation makes us very nervous, because we find often that the new hire being tasked to us has not been planned or thought out at all. It is a desperate hire as a result of the most salient need which simply happens to be a helping hand to stop the rest of the staff from drowning beneath paper work, keeping up with social media and meeting unrealistic deadlines. Sound familiar?
