Consider Potential when Hiring
Without a doubt, recruiting, especially for procurement and supply management positions is difficult. You ultimately want to know if this candidate has the right skills and traits that will lead to success. So, you take a look at their resume and review a long list of experience or, in some cases you review their resume and see a lack of direct experience. Who do you hire? This week, Source One Project Nicole Mahaffey challenges your preconceptions on hiring based strictly on experience, offering additional factors to consider when evaluating if a candidate is the right fit for your organization.

He also shares insight into which areas to focus on during negotiations.
