How to screen and interview candidates for your remote team

So, you’re ready to build your dream remote team? You’ve got the job description, you’ve got the candidates and now… it’s time to narrow them down and actually PICK your new team member.

Exciting times! But for a lot of people, the process can also be a bit scary, especially if you’ve never done it before.

* Maybe it’s your first time hiring a remote worker


* Maybe it’s your first time hiring ANYONE


* Or maybe even your first time chatting with someone in a totally different country to you


Relax. You’re going to be fine.
