(Newswire.net -- June 30, 2015) Beverly Hills, CA --Andrea Doven has spent many years working in human resources, and her experience has given her insight into many aspects of the hiring process. In a recent video interview, Doven discussed the realities of being a hiring manager and offered help to others in the same field who may need advice on how to handle certain situations.
"I am called upon by many people to help them hire," notes Doven. "I have recruited over 400 people in the last two decades. The key to being a good hiring manager is understanding what the person doing the hiring is looking for."
Doven has advice for managers who are tasked with hiring. "Before you ever look at a single resume or conduct one interview, create a profile of the perfect candidate. Talk to the person most interested in the employee as well as his or her superiors. Are the descriptions of the ideal candidate very different for each person? If so, there is a disconnect between what the manager expects and what the business owner expects. Be sure to solve this problem before moving on with hiring."
Additionally, Doven advises those who are hiring for others to be sure that they understand the particulars of the job, including salary and benefits. "Hiring someone without knowing exactly what the employer is willing to offer is a mistake," says Doven. Further, she advises hiring managers to discuss a range of salary and other benefits rather than sticking to a particular number. This helps hiring managers save employers money and makes them more flexible.
