More and more fresh grads are being attracted to business valuation practices these days. If you’re thinking about hiring some of them you need to pay close attention to ‘fit’.
Hiring at the entry level is hard enough when you have so little actual work experience to evaluate. Hiring in business valuation has its own set of challenges because it’s a business of judgment that not everyone can adapt to. The Borrowman Baker BV Candidate Assessment helps you address those challenges.
There are times when an engagement calls for a methodical approach and careful analysis before making a decision. Completing the engagement productively and profitably, however, can also require quick decisions and a willingness to accept certain kinds of risk.
Any new hire in valuation needs to be patient, good with methodical processes and have a good task focus. At the same time, you want an A-player who is a self-starter capable of handling multiple assignments and being self-motivated.
You want your staff to be cooperative and agreeable, and to work within the rules. At the same time, you want them to be able to defend a point of view and question when they may not be in agreement with the result being produced.
Knowing how your candidate balances these competing interests can help you make a smarter hiring decision.
The Borrowman Baker BV Candidate Assessment is an online assessment that lets you benchmark your entry-level candidate against a profile developed specifically for the beginner. The report you will receive includes suggestions for follow-up interview questions that let you get a better handle on your candidate’s ‘fit’.
