Hello and welcome to the Clear Point Consultants video blog. If you’re trying to recruit a new employee, be careful that you don’t make one of the most common hiring mistakes: rushing the process.

When there’s an open position on your team, it’s understandable that you want to fill it quickly. But when you hire the first reasonable candidate that comes along, you might miss out on other applicants who could be a better fit. And by hurrying the screening process, you may not catch red flags that could have warned you against hiring the wrong person.

Rather than trying to cram in the time to read resumes and advertise open positions yourself, consider partnering with a recruiting agency. Professional recruiters know just what to look for to find the perfect candidate for your open role.
