From the Back Cover
"Finding exceptional people is a difficult task in any hiring market. Even now, when there are so many candidates, it is challenging to identify the best hire for your company. The best practices in MATCH provide a systematic approach for identifying, hiring, and retaining the right people."
—LIZ HICKOK, SPHR, HR Director, Sage North America
"MATCH is the perfect name for this book. Matching the right people to the right job in the right company is critical. A wrong match can kill, and a great match can make you. Learn how to make better matches today from a proven professional who spends every workday on the front lines of the employment war."
—RICK MYERS, founder and CEO, Talent Zoo
"If interviewing anyone ever made you unsure, then MATCH is for you. The hiring tactics discussed in MATCH are brilliant! MATCH is a must-read for anyone involved in the hiring process."
—DAVE BUCKEL, CFO
"MATCH puts hiring GREAT people at the top of the priority list—which is exactly where it should be."
—JIM HULING, consultant and author of Choose Your Life!
"As the business community continues to understand the importance and value of 'paying it forward,' it is critical that companies develop hiring techniques allowing them to identify, hire, and retain employees that foster a culture of giving back. MATCH provides a method for achieving that objective."
—BOB LITTELL, author, speaker, and Chief NetWeaver, NetWeavers International
"I have hired a great deal of people in my career. But it wasn't until I used the MATCH process that I felt as comfortable with my hire on day one as I did a year after the employee started. I am very pleased with the results."
—KEVIN MELENDY, CEO, Spectral Response LLC
Top Customer Reviews
I gleaned a lot from this book. Well written, easy to follow, and filled with solid advice.
Highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to hire quality people who are committed to your company's success.
It isn't always easy to understand one's own culture so Dan offers up lots of great guidelines (even available on his website) to get us up to speed. Sort of a Sociology 101 introduction to "Corporate Culture". Don't think that you can know what your culture is unless without some deep processing activities by all segments of your company.
Dan's writing style makes Match easy to read and very easy to comprehend. Dan shows how much work is necessary to find the right person for your job. Of course, if you follow Dan's processes you won't be able to blame anyone but yourself for selecting the wrong candidate.
My suggestion is to get the book and then hire Dan's company to help you impliment it so you can learn form HIS mistakes and not just your own. Then you can use his processes over and over again, with confidence. e
Dan makes it sound easy, but that's only because he has done it so many times and also because he has a gift for MATCHing the right people with the right job.
I believe that Dan's videos on his website are a great companion to this book...http://www.danerling.com/default.asp?s=MCH. Similar to his book, these step-by-step videos are presented in a very simplistic way - helping hiring managers gain confidence that they can truly develop a solid and successful hiring process for themselves and their firms.
