The Ideal Candidate Profile Tool allows hiring managers to identify and evaluate the importance of attributes that an ideal candidate for a particular position should possess in order to be successful on the job. Use the tool to:
- Document the attributes of an ideal candidate.
- Determine if the attributes are critical for a candidate to possess upon hire.
- Record "deal breakers" to watch out for during recruitment and selection.
- Assist in the identification of attributes with an attribute bank.
The tool can be used by anyone who needs to define an ideal candidate profile, including recruiters, HR staff, and hiring managers. It is recommended that recruiters or HR staff collaborate with the hiring manager for the target position to ensure that the profile is complete, accurate, and realistic.
