How to Hire (for New Ventures & Startups)

Janice Chaka, PHR, HRBP

Wednesday, September 4 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

When looking at the factors affecting an organization’s success, few are as important as the team leading it. And as damaging and costly as a bad hire can be at an established organization, in a new venture it can be lethal. How can a founder avoid these dangers and build a good team? 

Whether they're making their first hire or their 50th, this class will provide founders with useful tips and guidelines for each stage of the hiring process, including deciding whether or not to hire, finding talent, interviewing candidates, and onboarding new employees.


  • How to decide whether you need to hire and what type (full-time; contract; part-time).
  • Create structured processes that grant efficient and high-quality recruiting.
  • Interview do’s and dont's, including important legal considerations.
  • Best practices for on-boarding and retaining new hires.
