Crucial things you should look at before you hire an employee for the first time:

 

Experience

 

Experience

  • It’s crucial that you see how many years of experience a person has in the same/similar role. Some people would only say they have experience in, for example, customer support when what is required is they should have enough years of experience when it comes to providing technical support -as opposed to the ones related to customer service calls. If you see someone’s history spans several roles and that is exactly what you require in your next team member then they might just be your perfect candidate and it all depends on your desire and need for having them.

Why does he/she want this job?

  • If someone left their previous work due to an issue you believe will be the same in your company, then it won’t be long until this person decides to move on to a different one. It is vital to give these employees the tools they need to perform well in their job and treat them like you would want to be treated if you were in their position.

Education

 

Education

  • Education is one of those underrated factors that can help set you apart from the competition. Many people never consider applying to a position unless they think they’re qualified but over time, companies with the best employees realize that education doesn’t stop after college graduation and as such, they encourage developers to be lifelong learners and it shows in their paychecks!

Attitude

 

Attitude

  • If a person focuses on negative thinking and doesn’t adopt a Positive Attitude, they might make everyone else feel like things aren’t going to get any better. This negativity will spread anywhere and everywhere in the company and eventually bring people down. That’s why it’s important for you to evaluate upbeat employees with a positive attitude that will help the team move forward without getting stuck in the past.
