How You Interview Determines the Quality of People You Attract

The reality is, interviews only give you about an hour to assess every skill and personality trait of a candidate. In this tiny window of time, you need definitive answers…

Does this person have the skills for the position…?

Can I trust this person with my business’ reputation and customers…?

Will this person be the right fit for my team…?

That’s a lot to find out in just an hour or two. Complicating things further, who you meet in the interview is often very different than who shows up on day one!

The truth is interviews are a combination of sales, psychology and HR… and this book shows you how to master all three and start hiring the right people.

Hi, I’m Ryan…

Founder and CEO of Core Matters and author of How to Hire the Ones You Won’t Want to Fire.

I grew up in an entrepreneurial blue collar family.

As an owner/operator my dad barely had a spare minute each day to spend with our family. Simply because he didn’t have the right people at work.

Over the past 10+ years I’ve helped hundreds of service businesses hire thousands of people. Now, I’ve written this book to share these very same interviewing techniques with you.

My book aims to help you nail the interview process every time so you can hire the top-tier candidates that every service business wishes they had.
