5 Signs You’re Hiring Wrong (and How To Fix Them)

As entrepreneurs, we hate seeing lost opportunities, especially when they are pitfalls we could have avoided. Hiring pitfalls are some of the most common mistakes we make.

As an entrepreneur for 15+ years, I’ve made my fair share of mistakes in the hiring process and lived through those pitfalls just as much as the next. I have seen businesses clean up those common mistakes and radically transform their business by having more and better-qualified candidates.

There is a common trend to identify you have hiring problems. Chances are some or all of these signs resonate with you:

  1. Not getting qualified candidates
  2. Lack of response from candidates
  3. Taking way too much time to hire
  4. New hires leaving faster than coming in
  5. Compensation feels more like a guessing game
