Creating Your Job Description
The first step to hiring a candidate is by creating awareness about the position you want to be filled. You have to make sure that you give important information about the job you want to give out. Such information would normally include your organization’s vision and mission statement, a quick but adequate description of the job which will entail what you expect from the candidate in terms of skills, abilities, qualifications, and responsibilities.
Develop a Plan of attack
Make sure your interview is well planned. Put early filtering stages in place so that the unfit candidates can be sieved out before getting to the technical interview stage. This will ensure that the technical interview team will not be overwhelmed by too many candidates, many of whom are not up to the task, thereby preventing a colossal waste of time and resources.

Ensure they Follow Best Practices
Enquire about the tools your employees are using and make sure they use the best tool required by a particular problem the proper way. Make sure they are knowledgeable about the workflow and technology interfaces of your team.
