The BAS hiring market is getting tighter, but “settling” on a candidate can be worse than leaving the position open. In last month’s issue of Automated Buildings we discussed the “5 Questions Every Hiring Manager MUST Get Answers To (Part 1 of 2).” 

Since then, I have received numerous inquiries regarding Question 1 (“Does the candidate have the skills (both hard and soft) that I need?”) “Skip, do you have a list of questions you can send me that will give me some ideas on what to ask?”

Most Controls Managers are promoted into the role because they are good Controls professionals. While hiring is critical, it isn’t something they have done every day nor is it something that most have received formal training in.
