Back in August, we discussed different candidate types one might encounter during both the recruitment and interview process. Like I said then, there is no ideal candidate personality perfect for every position across the board. Each job requires someone different and each company should look for personality diversity in its employees.

A common misconception many small businesses or companies have is the desire to hire like-minded employees who act and perform similarly to the owner or other employees. However, CEO and founder of Steven Step Recruiting, Beth Gilfeather, warns against this saying, “while it might seem like a good thing…it can hamper growth.”

With that in mind, a recruiter and potential interviewer not only needs to be aware of different candidate types, but also techniques and strategies to use for these different types of people during the interview process.

Have you ever heard the tale of the African crocodile and the Egyptian plover?

The story of these two species and their symbiotic relationship has been around for thousands of years. Here, both the crocodile and plover benefit from the actions of the other. Its completely mutual.

According to this myth (and loosely based facts), the crocodiles lie on the shores of the Nile River with their mouths open while plover fly into the open mouths and, like a giant piece of dental floss, eat the leftover meat stuck between the crocodile’s teeth. The plover get full and the crocodiles keep their bright smiles.

The validity of this relationship is constantly in question — in fact most believe it is a myth — but it teaches an important concept of nature where two seemingly different parts can work together for the overall good.
