Evaluate Critical Thinking
Have you ever hired employees whose technical skills haven’t turned out to be all they were cracked up to be? I’m using the expression “technical skills” to describe the subject matter expertise that a person brings to the job.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s an attorney, a contractor, a sales professional, or an IT consultant. The bottom line is that it’s up to you to determine if your prospective employees really have the expertise that they claim they possess.
