They say in the movies, write what you know. So I’ll share an experience we’ve had. An applicant sends a great cover letter. The interview on the phone is fun and it turns out we both speak French and we both cried when Guns and Roses came back to the concert. She’s a “Perfect Fit For The Company” I think in her 2nd (and final) interview. I don’t need to call references and I’ll overlook the fact that she was at her last job for 4 months and the one before for 3 months. She’s smart and funny and I love her and it’s going to be great.
Practical steps you can take to make your company culture (and yourself) even better.
