Creating a Real Recruiting Effort at Your Startup // BUSINESS 350
Charlie O'Donnell, Principal, First Round Capital
Monday, May 23rd from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
Finding great talent is hard -- whether you're recruiting a developer or a salesperson. But recruiting great talent is what differentiates truly game-changing startups from the rest. A company's success will depend on being able to find and recruit the best people to join its effort, making recruiting the single most important aspect of entrepreneurship.
Unfortunately, most startups get it completely wrong--relying on job posts, sending businesspeople to Meetups and paying bounties to bring people in. This class will focus on a few examples of extremely effective practices that any startup can and should do to create a scalable recruiting effort.
