If you’re looking to fill a position with your company, you’ll be ideally seeking someone who is already employed, since this assures you that you’ll be getting a motivated and experienced employee who is keen to take on this position. It’s important, then, to give some thought to the way in which you approach interviewing people who are already employed, ensuring that you do not waste their time.
Regardless of the industry you are in, a specialist position requires a specialist approach, and if you are interviewing someone who is already employed, it’s likely that he or she will be a high quality applicant. Some recruiters argue that the best applicants will be crying out for the position in question, but this is not necessarily the case, since they are already in employment and may have several other opportunities to explore.
