EPISODE 273 Worried about hiring an “over-qualified candidate”? If you understand the risks and rewards you may be getting one of your best hires.

 

CONTENT WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
One of the benefits of hiring someone who is “over-qualified is that you will not need to spend nearly the amount of time training them.  The faster they are up to speed the easier your job is going to be.

The main risk with over-qualified candidates is the retention risk: Do they have the skills, competencies, capabilities, and personality that you need? You will need to help them navigate the culture, communication & work processes.  Be sure and ask the right questions in the interview to determine their ability to navigate a new work environment.  When hiring an over-qualified may sure you set a standard of expectations and hire against that standard.

Dr. Bray provides some great questions to ask during the interview to help you assess the candidate and how they can benefit your organization.
