Ready to Hire Your First Employee - Part 2
Experienced employee or someone you can train?
Clearly defining the position can guide you in the right direction. Will your business be better serviced by someone bringing experience or a blank slate you can train to match your business? Have you considered whether the position requires the employee to hold a qualification? Equally important is finding someone who shares the company values, it is vital they fit with your business culture.
How will you recruit for the position?
Have you decided how you will advertise the position? Will you self-manage the process, posting the vacancy on Social Media (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) or engage a Recruiter? Whichever route you choose be thorough – have a good recruitment process in place and make sure you conduct reference checks on any candidates you are considering.
