Know what you need

Are you looking for people knowledgeable enough to take initiative on their own, or someone with little knowledge but a readiness to submit and heed to instructions? You are the pioneer of your business, so define what you want.
Review credentials and applications
Carefully go through their credentials and applications and be sure to analyze if whether at all, either of them will be suitable for the job opening, in terms of, work experience, intellectual capacity, technical know-how and so on. If so, why not bring them on board.
Do away with deadlines
As a growing business, putting a deadline on your hiring process is the last thing you want to do. By so doing, you simply reduce your chances of hiring the best candidates. You’ll want to ask yourself this question: "what are the chances of being able to hire a suitable candidate within the specified period of time"?
Interview many candidates
Getting the best of the best should be your mindset when hiring. Therefore interview as many applicants as you can, until you find the one(s) you consider suitable.
Make probing inquiries
One of the best ways to tell if candidates will be fit for your business is to ask them questions that will determine whether they possess a positive attitude, possess high energy levels, good communications skills and so on.
These tips will make the hiring process much easier and will help you find the right people to take your business to the next level.
