A key component to retaining your millennial employees is to make sure that you’re hiring the right ones.
It’s been said that building a solid team is one of the biggest challenges anyone has in the process of bringing an idea into fruition. So don’t waste time and money training people who aren’t up for the job.
It’s important to know that the key to hiring a good millennial fit for your company revolves around culture. So ask us interview questions about it. Ask us about what inspires us about your company mission and the way your business is run. Share your story about how working for this company has improved your life and what you’d like to see improve about it with our help.
Sell us a lifestyle. Where are we going to go for lunch breaks? What kind of team building extracurriculars are available?
Tell us what other current employees say about working at your organization. Know that if we take this job, it will become part of our identity. We are mindfully constructing the identities we want.
Prepare us for the interview. What do we need to bring, as far as our portfolio or resume? What’s the dress code? Where will it be conducted? How many people will be present? Provide us multiple options for times and places to meet. Be honest about when you’ll be able to get back to us with an answer as to if we got the job or not. If you don’t, we may take another one.
Other questions to ask during an interview are:
- What would an ideal at work look like to you?
- How do you like to get recognized for a job well done?
- Where do you find your motivation to complete a goal, even when you start to lose your passion for it?
- Where do you want to be in 5 years? 10 years?
- What do you think other people recognize you for?
- Tell me about a time you did not perform as well as you wish you could?
- What have you professionally accomplished that you are the most proud of?
- What do you do on your days off?
It all starts on day one.
