Interviewing candidates for marketing executive positions is not an easy task. The stakes are high, and to complicate the process, the pool of A+ marketing executive candidates continues shrinking while demand continues growing. This requires a fine balance between moving through the interviewing process fast enough and hiring the right candidate for the job who can be an excellent leader, a true team player, and a cutting-edge marketer to take your organization’s growth to the next level. As a result, many decision makers responsible for the interviewing process make the same mistake over and over again that can (and will) cost your company the right hire.
