HIRE with FIRE is the hiring manager's guide to a relationship-driven interview and hiring process. This process is designed to improve the candidate experience, help you hire the right people, build your employer brand and make employee recruitment fast and easy. 

HIRE with FIRE is about building great relationships with the people you interview. The employee-employer relationship starts the moment the candidate is contacted about a position. Throughout the interview process, the employer and potential employee will meet to get to know each other better and may experience a variety of different feelings similar to the emotions involved in a personal relationship: the nervous energy of meeting someone for the first time, the awkwardness of getting to know each other, or the worry about their first impression. 

HIRE with FIRE looks at how gut reaction can influence your decisions and how your emotions may influence your decision on who you hire. The authors also take a closer look into the candidate's feelings during the interview process and the impact it has on their decision to accept a job offer, their onboarding experience and their longevity with your company. 

The process of interviewing and hiring can be more than a mundane managerial task. It is the start of an employer-employee relationship versus just "making a hire."
