What are the four nonnegotiable, nonteachable qualities that you must hire? . Hire on a Whim is not just for the employer. It allows potential employees to see what a good employer is looking for and gives ideas on how to bring out one's qualities

What are the four nonnegotiable, nonteachable qualities that you must hire? Can you be sure, really sure. It allows potential employees to see what a good employer is looking for and gives ideas on how to bring out one's qualities. With help from the author of this book, Garret Miller, I was able to land an internship with Microsoft for the summer. Walking into the interview, I was not sure I would get the position. However, I was able to present myself as someone with a strong work ethic, integrity, maturity, and humility. By no means am I saying I got the position because of "Hire on a Whim".

2 new chapters and new insights will round out this hit book. I found it to be incredibly useful and gave specific tools to improve hiring practices. We just finished Ch 1 today. It gave me a different head space to enter the hiring process with – I think this was far and away the MOST helpful part of the book. It can’t be seen as a chore but as an investment. Also, awareness of my own unconscious biases and to be careful of them. A pitfall I have fallen into in the past.

What are the four nonnegotiable, nonteachable qualities that you must hire? .

Hire on a WHIM breaks down the essentials, not of whom to hire, but what to hire. What makes these four qualities essential is that no matter how great a manager you are, these are attributes you can't teach. As one expert put it, "These essentials are part of a candidate's DNA; they either have them, or they don't.

What are the four nonnegotiable, nonteachable qualities that you must hire? Can you be sure, really sure, that the person you are about to hire is the one? We've all experienced that feeling of buyer's remorse when what we thought we "needed" isn't as fabulous as we thought it would be. Many managers have a similar feeling, "hire's remorse," after they extend an offer to a prospective employee and get that small but unmistakable twinge in the gut. Hiring for a new position doesn't have to be this way. Hire on a WHIM breaks down the essentials, not of whom to hire, but what to hire. What makes these four qualities essential is that no matter how great a manager you are, these are attributes you can't teach. As one expert put it, "These essentials are part of a candidate's DNA; they either have them, or they don't." So, before you make that job offer, be sure your future employee has what it takes to be hired on a WHIM. "Managers, at every level must hire the right qualities in order to field the best team. WHIM will help managers succeed in this area."

Excellent resource for interviewing candidates. It does what it says: it enables the interviewer to get information, actually stories from the candidate about their past. I found out many important details about the candidate's life that was not on their resume: past work experience, their initiative, ability to overcome, their work ethic, their level of humility, how they handled difficult situations, how they treat those in authority over them and coworkers in past employment situations, etc. It was remarkable to see the answers unfold before me by just asking the right questions and knowing what I was looking for. It has enabled our management team to get the information we haven't been able to get in the past to see how emotionally mature, stable, and really see a candidate's character. I completed the book in 3 days (my time) and applied what I learned in four interviews that first week...very telling results. Absolutely the best book I've read on interviewing to get the results we've always needed! And while I was reading the book, I realized what the emloyeess were lacking that we have discharged over the past few years. "If I had known then what I know now," we would not have hired them. Expect much less problem employees now that we have the tools to weed out the wrong type of people and confirm the right kind of people of our envirnment! Thank you Garrett Miller for sharing these awesome tools!

I have known Garrett for a long time. About a month ago, I saw him and he reminded me of a very good book for hiring and interviewing.... (this one). He has been coming to my family's restaurant since I was a kid and he has always been a good, genuine guy.

Now that I am a college graduate pursuing a full time job in the financial field, this book was exactly what I needed. After reading this I have a much better idea of what managers tend to (or should) look for in a candidate. Not only that, but how to handle an interview as well. It teaches the reader to think from both sides of the interview process to see where all parties are coming from. What I like most is how this book tells everything through a story- which makes it much more relatable and a lot easier for the reader to see what is going on, and WHY. This book is simple and very easy to understand. I recommend this to all hiring managers and kids who are looking for a full time job post-graduation.

Thank you Garrett!!

I am a junior in college and read this book about a year ago. I have had several interview since then.

Hire on a Whim is not just for the employer. It allows potential employees to see what a good employer is looking for and gives ideas on how to bring out one's qualities.

With help from the author of this book, Garret Miller, I was able to land an internship with Microsoft for the summer. Walking into the interview, I was not sure I would get the position. However, I was able to present myself as someone with a strong work ethic, integrity, maturity, and humility. By no means am I saying I got the position because of "Hire on a Whim". But, this book did help me see how an employer might approach the hiring process.

I encourage all students to read "Hire on a Whim" and see what employers really are looking for in a candidate.

I plan on reading his new book, "Hired Right Out of College", as soon as I find some time.

I bought the Kindle book in 2011 and liked it so much that I bought the paperback as well. I was looking for a teachable model for recruitment that could take the guess work out of the interview process. This is one of the must have books for any CEO. It is one of my top 5 favorite business books that has positively influenced my business career tremendously. You will be a better CEO because of this book. Buy it now!

I'm not a big fan of books on hiring. Typically, they seem to be written from the hyper-politically correct human resource perspective & I'm running a business where my folks are paid to deliver results, not on their HBDI score.

I read the book, with reservations, based on a recommendation of a business leader I respect.

This book was a pleasant surprise.

The book doesn't offer any profound, "knock-your-socks-off" revelations. Instead it does a fantastic job of giving structure & a naming sequence to thoughts you probably already have.

I found the book most helpful for me as I explained to others what I was looking for in a candidate.

Working for a Fortune 100 company, panel interviews are the norm. Prior to an interview, I can give the panel a short succinct list of qualities I am looking for in the person we hire. It not only gives a framework for the panel as they listen to the candidates answer the questions but also provides specific touch points for discussion of the candidates performance in the interview.

Also, asking for stories from the candidate's life pushes them past the "stock" answers that they most likely studied prior to the interview.

I first used WHIM in this manner about 6 months ago. I made a hire based on the results and couldn't be happier with the hire we made.

Additionally, this work can be useful establishing common framework for evaluating current employee's performance.

Well done.

The book on hiring on a WHIM is excellent. The author captured the important aspects in an easy-to-read format, and the message remains long after the book is read.
Work ethic, humility, integrity and motivation are aspects we all need to have part of our inner being to be able to find success in our lives.
