How to Pick Between Two (or More) Great Candidates


Oftentimes, finding one really great candidate to fill an open position at your company can be a struggle, but being faced with multiple great candidates can be just as overwhelming. Determining which highly qualified candidate to choose is a struggle, as you don’t want to regret your decision down the road.

The good news is you don’t have to make this choice alone. When you work with a staffing agency, your recruiter will help you every step of the way, so you can always feel confident in your hiring decisions.

Tired of choosing the wrong candidate for the job? Join forces with a recruiter and enjoy the following benefits, so you don’t ever have to regret passing up the right candidate again.

  • Build a Candidate Pool. Instead of rushing to find the best person for the job when you need to fill a position, your recruiter will actively search for candidates who would be a good fit for your company — even when you don’t have any openings. When you’re ready to bring on new team members, your candidate pool will already contain talented professionals who would be a great match for your organization, allowing you to hire in a faster, better and more cost-effective manner.
  • Gauge Overall Fit. It’s easy to get distracted by a really impressive resume or a friendly candidate with a great personality, but your staffing partner will help you stay focused. New hires must have all the right elements to ultimately be a success, but gauging these on your own can be challenge. Before extending a job offer, your recruiter will carefully assess the candidate to make sure they’re both a good skills and cultural fit.
  • Seek Advice From Your Recruiter. Sometimes you may truly be faced with multiple candidates with the potential to thrive at your organization, so deciding which one to choose can be daunting. As a hiring expert, your recruiter will read between the lines to help you make the best possible decision. Since they’ve seen nearly every type of recruiting situation play out, they offer a unique perspective that can save your company plenty of time and money down the road.
