At some point, you might go through a rigorous hiring process and find a skilled job candidate only to discover that your company doesn't actually need his or her skills, writes Bryan Burkhart, founder of H.Bloom. He describes how his company was forced to let go of a pay-per-click expert after discovering that customers didn't respond to that particular marketing technique. "[I]f it turns out that you don't need a particular position, the only thing you can do is to make a change to make room for the people and the positions you really do need," he writes.
