Don't Make This Mistake

By Kevin Roth

“He’s perfect for the role but I’m just worried he’s not going to be happy doing some of the more boring tasks that this job requires.”

As a hiring manager facing this dilemma, you need to ask yourself a few questions:

  • Were you brutally honest about the less attractive aspects of the role?

  • Is the candidate employed?

  • Is the candidate actively exploring other similar opportunities?

If the answer is a resounding “YES” to all of those questions, then stop overthinking it!

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you know someone better than they know themselves.

This person is leaving a steady job to pursue your position (which you were very honest about) over several competing opportunities. Seems pretty convincing to me!
