Making sure someone is the right fit and will stick around for a long time are the two main goals small business owners usually have when hiring employees. To make sure your next hire is the right fit, you need to know the correct questions to ask during the application and interview process. Maybe just as importantly, you should know the questions you must avoid to protect yourself from legal ramifications. With the right questions, the information you gather will help you hire the right employee.

If you are currently hiring, or will soon be, an upcoming training titled Hire Right may be for you. Learn from Kara Beech, owner of Beech Creative Group, and take advantage of her more than 14 years of human resources experience. The September 12th online webinar costs $15 to attend.
