How to Hire

Ideal Candidate Profile Guide

An Ideal Candidate Profile is a guide for any hiring manager to identify their ideal candidate for the job. The Ideal Candidate Profile is used as a tool throughout the hiring process to evaluate candidates. The Profile acts as a checklist as you learn about a potential candidate, helping you ask better questions and probe deeper to ensure you can clearly answer if the candidate is the best person for the job.

Remember: there is no perfect candidate. The right hire won’t necessarily check all the boxes outlined in the Ideal Candidate Profile. The tool is intended to clarify what’s most important and what’s non-negotiable.
