he situation is well-known to any event organizer: you are looking for a light technician who can do X, Y and Z. A good-looking gentleman comes forward on Facebook and declares: “Yes, I can do it.”
But can you trust him?
How to avoid unpleasant surprises during the job?
3 steps to make sure you hire the best technician:
1. Ask to send a resume – sounds corporate? Maybe so, but if a technician sends you a resume, it means that – he probably has something to put in there and is not worried about you calling one of his former employers.This proves his reliability.
2. Call the companies mentioned in the resume and find out how he did– here you don’t need to explain too much, call and ask what are his strengths and weaknesses, how did they work with him.
3. If possible, ask him to come to you for an interview. During the interview, of course, you can ask him specialized questions with which to test his knowledge, but such a meeting is more a test of reliability – whether he will come, how he will come (on time, sober?), what kind of person he will turn out to be (do you get along?).
