Step 3: Hiring
One of the best strategies when it comes to making a hiring decision is to simply have a conversation during the interview. Get the candidate talking and take the opportunity to learn about them. Questions to get them talking can include:
What were your last three jobs?
How would you describe your personality?
Why do you like dentistry?
What do you not like doing in the office?
How well do you get along with others?
How well do you function on the team?
What do you dislike about your previous jobs?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
How have you grown in the last few years?
The purpose of the interview is to get to know the candidate both from a skillset level and as an individual. By having an open conversation and asking questions, you can gain a sense of how well this individual may fit on your team and contribute to the practice.
