Conference Roundup: Hire Smart
Girdner, who has worked in human resources in the nonprofit world for 10 years, gave a number of tips on where to find candidates, how to interview them and how to get rid of those who are no longer making it.
First, if you want to find good people, you have to know where they are.
Nonprofits need to identify the type of background, skills, education and character they want their hires to possess. Then they should find what publications those people read, what Web sites they visit, who they know, what schools they attend, what associations they belong to and where they currently work.
