When considering the hiring process, we often assume that companies are in search of someone who fits perfectly with the company’s culture. In other words, ideal candidates reflect the company’s mission and core values, while being able to adapt to the existing order of things through their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.

One thing you should do is pay close attention to the interviewee who has the required experience but are just not sure if he or she will fit with your company’s culture.
