Tips for Filling a Position

Tips for Filling a Position

Filling a position can be an overwhelming task for a manager or business owner. You want to find the right person for the role, but how exactly do you know when you’ve found the right one? Don’t worry. We understand how stressful this can be, so we’ve created a list of tips for filling a position in your organization.

1. What Will They Be Doing?

The first thing to consider is what the new hire will be doing. It sounds simple, but we often forget this when faced with an applicant’s credentials. If the position is more technical, then you want someone with the experience and aptitude to match. This will also direct where you will go to find qualified applicants. Take a moment and get an idea for the position and the tasks associated with it to form a baseline.

2. What Type of Position Is It?

Are you hiring for a full or part-time position? A remote worker or someone on site? Will they be a long-term hire? A temporary one? Or a temp to long-term consideration? Not only will this better define the position as you seek to recruit for it, but it will also help you understand your budget considerations for the new role.

3. How Much Experience Do They Need?

Some positions need to be filled with experienced people. Other positions need talented and enthusiastic people, but are something they will learn while working. Understanding this will also help you identify who you are looking for as your ideal candidate.

Your Company Culture

We’ve all heard how important culture fit is for a new hire. Why do we hear it so much? Because it’s true. You need to have a good match with a new hire when it comes to core values, needs, and wants. Take a minute to consider the culture of your organization and think about the type of person that would be a fit. Also, think about how you will be able to know that and how you can interview for it.
