Selecting the candidate with the right skills and abilities is always important. When there are several strong candidates, hiring managers may experience difficulty determining the best one to fill the role. Using an interview assignment or scenario question may help. These options provide a concrete and tangible work sample to evaluate analytical and critical thinking skills, as well as personal traits in addressing BI-related tasks.
Attention: If your expertise is not in BI, review Hire BI Talent to find a source for the assistance of an expert BI practitioner during the interviews to best assess the true abilities of the candidate(s).
