What I Think About When I Hire Someone

If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears.

- Simon Sinek

People ask me: "What do you look for when you hire someone?"

In addition to the inevitable intangibles, here's what I look for:

1. Energy: Does the person have "a motor"? Or are they sluggish?

2. Attitude: Does the person have a positive, enthusiastic spirit? Is the person smiling?

3. Caring: In addition to being enthusiastic, do they actually care about what they do? Is there a passion there?

4. Teachable:  Do they want to get better at their job every day? Do they work hard, but with intelligence?

5. Loyalty: Do they show commitment to projects? Will stay at it when things get rocky?

I realize these qualities overlap somewhat, but I think it's helpful to see them separated from each other, for the sake of evaluating yourself on each trait.

And here's the the kicker, the icing, the cherry on top:

If my plane was delayed, and if I was stuck in an airport with this person for 3 hours, would I enjoy the time with them?

I also tend to like people who have been working hard since a young age, and have some experience in the service industry, or customer service.

Because in the end, it all boils down to the prospect's ability to help other people. That's the type of person you want on your team.

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    Contact his email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com
