Hiring the perfect person for a job is not easy. In fact, nearly 50% of hiring decisions are bad ones. When I was interviewing candidates for a job for The Cru, one of the applicants stumped me with this question: "There's always one core question you're asking yourself at the heart of your decision making. What's yours for this position?" I had to admit to Alicia (the question asker) that I didn't know what it was, which led me to this epiphany: You can't find (or hire) what you don't know you're looking for. Learn how to make a good hire that lasts.
