Back story- My supervisor and I are currently looking for 5 people to fill a year long job commitment through a grant. We have had several resumes but only 5 people who have showed up for their interview. There are 5 sites where we will be placing them at and each site has the same job but each is different in its own way.
Here is my dilemma- I am confident in four of the people. There is one that I am just not sure about. She had come in earlier this week wanting to talk to my supervisor. She had no appointment or anything and waited around 2 hours until she came in. A little weird in my opinion. Anyways, she came back on Friday for the interview. She wanted a particular site (for some reason a lot of people are wanting this particular site). After the interview my supervisor and I talked and we thought she would be a good candidate for another site because we don't think she has enough initiative for the site she wants. You have to be a great self starter for that one but the one we want to place her at, she will receive a lot of support. I sent her an email that we would like for her to interview at this other site. She emailed me back today asking if the other site is out of the question.
I am now having doubts about this particular candidate. I feel like she is very pushy and I have a feeling that she will only do this until she finds something bigger and better that comes along. Because this is a grant it looks very bad on us if people quit before their completion date.
Anyways, I am asking here because my supervisor is very new to her job and I am having to train her on this particular aspect of her job. Should I tell my boss that we need to keep looking for someone else? Or should we give this person a chance? We have to have everyone hired and paperwork done in about 2 weeks.Answer Question
