Most important do not rely on resumes, keep an open mind. Resumes are important however they don't walk or talk. Where there is a question regarding a candidate prior to a meeting have a telephone conversation. You must sell yourself, the company, and the opportunity. Know the candidate's hot buttons and be prepared to discuss them. Make sure the candidate understands your process. We recommend a series of three meetings, one being with a group, one being social, i.e. breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is important during the process to share problems and challenges that exist within the company and about the opportunity.
