Step 2: Gathering Information

Desired outcome: all pertinent candidate information is collected, compiled and summarized

1. Request references for each of the shortlist candidates. We also collect any other pertinent information or feedback

2. Set up and conduct preliminary interviews with each candidate (and their spouse if applicable). If they are available, there are many good personality assessments that can also help provide valuable information for this step

3. Review the information gathered through references and interviews to determine which candidate(s) appears to be most suitable for the role.

4. Submit a summary of the information (Candidate Summary Sheet) to the leadership team who will make the final decision.
