Congratulations you have made it to the final step of the hiring process!
Hopefully, you have some successful candidates by this point that you would like to do some last-minute checks on in order to determine the final hire. Let’s say you have 4 potential candidates that have done exceptionally well, what do you do?
As a startup, culture fit is very important, so let the team determine who fits the best. You can also check their references to double-check that they are as good as they say. The key here is to not take too long, as you can actually lose your perfect hire.
If you have come to this step and none of your candidates have successfully completed the tasks/ interview, then start again. Analyze your job description, use more channels to share your job ad. You can also re-read the ones in the maybe pile, as it could be that you overlooked someone. But don’t settle for less. As a startup, it is super vital that you find a hire that will bring true value to your team.
