    Great resource for anyone involved in hiring!

    Richard Fein, who's written a number of helpful books for the career seeker, has proven his versatility with this excellent resource for employers. I enjoyed reading through the well-organized mistakes to avoid, which describe real-life mistakes... the lessons learned.. and to avoid making them. Fein emphasizes the importance of thorough background checks, provides helpful hints for reducing the time to hire without reducing the quality of candidates, creative ideas for recruiting, remembering your hiring procedures as a good guideline (with the understanding that they can be improved, successfully interviewing candidates, and smoothly transitioning new hires. This book is also helpful for job seekers in that it shows you the red flags that employers look for!
