I have 4 weeks to fill a moderately specialised position with a high wage (salary)as the previous employee in this position has put in their resignation. I'm taking out interviews as the person who normally does them is on holiday or something (convenient) and I've not done hiring for many years, and certainly not for a position this crucial to the workplace.
Like I mentioned the position is fairly specialised and I am familiar with it as I work closely to who's currently in the position, another reason why I have been tasked with hiring. I was wondering how harsh I should be with applicants pre-interview?
Many thanks :)
