“An amazing candidate applied for a role in my team. He interviewed brilliantly and I think he would be a great cultural and technical fit. I see him as a future star
The problem is my brothers son also applied for the role
The interview scoring matrix clearly shows he performed far worse than this star candidate. But he is my brothers son. Family comes first right?
After many sleepless nights I finally decided to amend the scoring to place my brothers son on top
He just started work with us last week and is struggling. After some intense training he might get up to speed. Our family is closer than ever though
Did I do the right thing? If anything, what should I have done differently?
