Interviewing the right applicant isn’t supposed to be a quick and easy process. If it was, almost anybody could do the job and who you chose wouldn’t be that important.
But that’s not the case, of course. Finding the perfect candidate for your team means selecting the person with the right qualifications, experience, temperament, and personality for that specific job. You’re not just filling a position; you’re finding a new team member, hopefully on a long-term basis. If you’re going to do it right, it will take some time, and you don’t want too few steps in the process.
But what if you have too many steps? What are the consequences of making the process too long? Unfortunately, to avoid not having enough steps and hurting their search, a business can have too many and do just as much damage.
