07. Recruiting in a virtual world – how to find the hidden gem
Hello and welcome to Episode 7 of the Becoming Financially Fit podcast. The podcast to help business owners overcome their financial fears.
Today I am sharing my own personal hints and tips on how to hire a virtual team member and not totally cock it up. Let’s face it resumes can be really really deceiving. But getting potential team members to sit exams or aptitude tests are also often misleading. Not to mention stressful.
So how do you choose? How do you get it right? Where do you even start?
Here’s the thing – there is no one solution that will absolutely work for everyone. Period. But there are still things you can all do, to help you get the best candidate for the role you are offering, and tip the balance of the “hit and miss” scales in your favour.
If your business needs amazing remote staff, that are there for the long haul, this episode is going to be right up your alley.
