ONE GOOD READ: How to hire someone you’ve never met in person
Harvard Business Review: The shift to remote hiring, whether voluntary or not, has brought with it not only new opportunities but new challenges as well. When we are making hiring decisions, we’ve traditionally done that only after having sufficient time interacting with potential new hires, mostly in person.

How can we do that as we continue to hire remotely for the foreseeable future? To improve your chances of finding the right person (even if you’ve never met them) and give them the best chance of success as a new teammate, there are a few adjustments you should consider.
