Here we are, in the last month of the 2nd quarter, a few weeks from the official start of summer, and halfway through the year. The energy and the enthusiasm of getting your year kicked off with new plans and strategy is fading and your sales number might begin to stagger. How do I know? It happens to most sales teams this time of year and every sales team encounters this at some point during the year.

Hiring is tough and it’s no secret. It requires time and money, but is a critical piece to grow and sustain a company. Having realistic hiring expectations is half the battle to making the right hire. Understanding what you are looking for, the candidate pool, and the competition are essential to being able to hire sales representatives effectively. It’s important to not only know who you are looking to hire, but how you’re going to hire. You must have a process in place.

I have recently taken on a new role at Treeline, Inc. I am still an executive recruiter, building long-lasting partnerships with companies and strong partnerships with sales professionals and my mission has not changed. I still help companies find and hire top sales talent and assist sales professionals in their job search. The new aspect of my role is that I am now building out a team of my own, and let me just say it is way tougher than I thought it was going to be.

Have you ever tried to hire a superstar candidate and lost them to another opportunity? Has it happened more than once? Why do you think that happened? Do you think your offer was less money than the winning company? Is your culture not as strong? Is your company not as competitive as others? There are many reasons that you will lose a candidate to another company’s offer, but it may be for completely different reasons than you would think.

I have been asked by hundreds of companies if personality testing is effective. And my answer is “I don’t believe so.” The thousands of tests in the market today all claim that they can help determine if a prospective employee is a good fit for your company, but then mention that testing is not an exact science and just one part of the hiring process. Then why use them?
