Welcome to our Select People Solutions Blog. We are a recruiting agency based in Lethbridge Alberta and have been serving this region for 25 years. I’m actually a pretty new addition to the team and came from a background of recruiting operators and trades people for a mining company.
Keeping the lines of communication open in your organization is a key element to your business success. Informed employees have the knowledge they need to perform their jobs more efficiently and effectively.
Checking references of applicants is a critical step in the hiring process. The vast majority of hiring errors could be avoided by checking references, rather than relying on first impressions backed by resumes, applications and interviews. There are important aspects to remember when performing reference checks.
The resume should be neat, professional, and easy to read. Information should flow in a logical sequence. If the applicant has taken the time to ensure the spelling and grammar is correct, it shows attention to detail, and that they have put effort into their application. Look for something that catches your eye, and holds your attention.
