Hiring Employees in Sales and Marketing

By November 28, 2012

Follow me on:

Hiring employees is becoming more challenging as employers are hiring employees from a shrinking pool of qualified candidates. Hiring employees is easier if you are willing to settle for 80% of your requirements and train the employee in the rest. You don't have to wait for the perfect sales and marketing candidate when you're hiring either. You might be waiting for a very long time with an unfilled position.

At the same time, you don't want to settle for an unqualified candidate or an individual who brings 50% of what you've decided you need to the table. That's why deciding before recruiting and interviews on the qualities, skills, knowledge, and experience your potential employee must have can save time and grief later - for you and the new employee.
