Mistakes Managers Make in Hiring

Mike had a great mention in Tom Foster's Blog:
Management Skills Blog

Here is a short clip;

In a comment yesterday from Michael Cardus, he ends with this statement. "As people we can pass judgment on a machines value, a dis-comfort comes from judging a persons value."

And yet that is the task in the hiring process, to render a managerial judgment about a person's potential value to the organization. Why is this so uncomfortable?

Here are the top five mistakes managers make in the hiring process.
- Manager misses important information during the interview.
- Manager misinterprets responses.
- Manager allows bias and stereotypes to influence the process.
- Manager makes the decision too quickly.
- Manager loses control of the interview.
