In 87,306 which digit is in the ten-thousands place?
We can approach this question in two ways: First let’s read this number 87,306. It is pronounced eighty-seven thousand, three hundred six. This gives us a clue that that the ten-thousands place is going to be one of the first two digits (87 thousand). Next we can break the 87 into two parts, the 7 is in the one-thousand position and the 8 is in the ten-thousand position. The second approach is to note each digit’s position working the number backwards: • 6 – ones position • 0 – tens position • 3 – hundreds position • 7 – one-thousands position • 8 – ten-thousand position Note the comma in the number determines where the one, ten, hundred position begins to repeat.
How do you find a candidate that is a good fit for your open position?
First, the search for a great candidate begins with the job requisition: Use your team and spend the time to define the specific skills required to be successful in this role. Also, look for what skills your team is missing and include those preferred skills in the requisition. To build a diversified team you’re seeking skills that fill gaps and not clones of the existing team members. Next, when interviewing candidates use behavior based questions instead of closed-end questions. For example, instead of asking “Have you ever had an issue with a peer?” use “Describe a time you had an issue with a peer and what occurred?” You’re listening to hear if this person was able to resolve a peer issue in a professional manner. Finally, do not settle for a lessor candidate just because you feel pressured to hire someone immediately. Hiring mistakes can be costly to both you and your team. Have patience and take your time to find a great candidate.
