It is a common mistake for the hiring manager in any company to consider only skills and knowledge at the interview. After all this is what the resume reflects, and job description describes. However, it is also common that after a few months, or even a few weeks from the hiring, it becomes apparent that the hiring was a mistake. This may be often too familiar, and often a costly mistake especially for small businesses. Therefore, what else should the hiring manager consider during the interview and screening process? It is missing two other factors: personal characteristics and motivation.
