The Four Golden Rules To Getting Me To Hire You- Would You Get the Gig?

I get about 30 unsolicited job applications a week. I try to meet at least three ‘would-be’ recruits every 10 days. And when I do, I am searching for the four critical ingredients that make for a great hire. Without these ‘Golden Four’, you won’t make it with me. Here they are. Do you have them?

Then begin to pick it up…here it comes! And then place it down. Torture. Eventually, it came, we hired, and the rest is history as they say. But here’s the point. The magic of that moment was simply this.
