It’s difficult to know if someone is the right person for the job through just a 30-minute interview or phone call. The way to judge someone is by their character.
Look for people who have grit. These people don’t let failure get them down. Instead, they find a way to make it happen.
You should also look for people who can work collaboratively. No matter what type of environment you work in, having someone who can work well with others is always a plus.
