Hiring new people for job openings is very important to keep a business healthy but nearly 7 out of every 10 hiring managers struggle to fill essential positions and end up with a bad fit. In 2018, 44% of all U.S. jobs saw employee turnover and during that same year, companies of all sizes, from under 10 people to businesses with hundreds of workers, saw difficulty hiring. The problem that companies are facing could originate in the hiring interview in and of itself.
