Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Now a days while hiring new people may be in order for companies, it is one of those long drawn out tasks that most managers don’t even have time really to deal with. so for the time challenged managers, HarvardBusiness has come up with some hiring blunders to stay away from in order to make your hiring job a little easier and time efficient.

Make sure to plan out your hiring strategy rather than just jumping right into the interviews, make sure your clear on exactly what you are looking for even before placing the ad. Many managers may worry excessively that they will hire someone who turns out to be the worst employee ever, however, the bigger tragedy would be to “not” hire someone who would have been your perfect fit.

Although few companies are adding–or even replacing–people now, hiring will become a key source of competitive advantage as soon as the first signs of recovery appear on the horizon, says Fernández-Aráoz, who also is the author of the recently published book Great People Decisions.

What hiring blunders can you add to this?
