In the third and final part we cover steps 6, 7 and 8.
Step 6. Interview and Select the Candidates
Six, interview and select the candidates.
You’ve met the candidates, you’ve completed the interviews, now to take stock and select the successful applicant.
The hiring manager (and where applicable, the line-manager) make the selections. Depending on your organisation, such as a country manager reporting to head office, sometimes a more senior person might have to approve the outcome.
Step 7. On-Boarding, Probation & OJT
Contrary to what some sales people might think, a sales is not complete until they receive the payment.
Similarly, hiring is not over until your new employee clears probation. That’s the seventh step.
The hiring manager and line-manager handle the following stages of the hiring process:
- On-the-job training
Step 8. Confirmation
If the new employee successfully completes the probation, the line-manager recommends confirmation and the hiring manager/business owner approves.
This in a nutshell is a typical 8-Step Hiring Process.

I’ve missed your Business Blog notice for quite a while, did not get any notification from WordPress, have fixed it now. Just catching up on the past few posts.
I totally agree on the importance of the steps you mentioned. However, many companies are going for contract term nowadays, so I sense that there is not much emphasis on how suitable is the candidate, especially of the lower end. It is more of hiring and firing process. Once hired, the mentor coaches the new hire with basic information to do their daily function. It is all up to the new hire to show an aptitude to progress and if he fails, he is deemed as not able to perform. Even with the internal promotions, people are given the rank and left on their own.
Leadership takes a while to approve new hires. I have a recent case where a line manager said he is afraid to push the new hires too much in case they walk out and he will have a new batch to train.

Re hiring and firing. Yes, this seems to be the norm and further aggravated by the so-called “gig” economy.
The only silver lining is, most Japanese companies continue to practice life-long employement. At least that’s what I know they do here in Singapore.
Trust your week is turning out well.
