4 basic features of the perfect candidate

In previous articles we have highlighted the importance of contacting good candidates, the different types that exist and what these profiles can bring you. In today’s post we want to explain the basic features of an ideal candidate, in this way you will understand 100% what an ideal candidate for your business can represent.

First of all, it is crucial to make it clear that when we talk about “an ideal candidate,” we do so solely in relation to the needs and requirements of a position. This is obviously a relative rating. A professional may be ideal for a position in a particular company, but stop as soon as you change some of the variables of the position or company.

An ideal candidate is the profile that fits your company’s culture, which is not only perfect for you, but considers your business perfect for him. This way, it will be very difficult for him to leave and, you know, a candidate who stays loyal to the company is a success in both respects.

On the other hand, an ideal candidate also possesses extraordinary skills and abilities. This extraordinary candidate is logically in high demand by companies, they are also usually working and, therefore, do not actively seek new opportunities. As a result, an ideal candidate is less accessible and more in demand. Not only is it difficult to find him, but you also have to convince him that your position is perfect for him.

Another feature of an ideal candidate is that it is usually the best investment; this type of candidate may seem more expensive at first, but in reality it is not. It is true that a good professional can demand a higher salary, but it will produce more and better, it will make a difference in what it contributes to the project. In short, a good candidate will improve the business and have more benefits.

If you want to know more, I invite you to read this article by our CEO, Santi Molins. It explains in more detail the features and advantages of the ideal candidate for your business.

And you, have you found your ideal candidate yet? Did your profile have these features? What important feature would you add? How did you find your ideal candidate?
