Takeaways

Added Bonus: If you and your team are looking to level up in your hiring skills, we have an interactive workshop focused on hiring best practices in the start up world!

Picking that one person who'd be best for the job out of dozens of applications is immensely stressful, and done poorly can result in hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars lost. How do you compare candidates? How do you build systems that allow you to move quickly and remain focused? How can you leverage your startup status to attract top candidates?

In this one hour workshop, we'll explore a step-by-step method for hiring. This method takes founders and hiring managers from role identification to drafting effective job descriptions, from competency identification to vetting process construction, and from screening call to offer letter.

When applied effectively, these methods can greatly reduce time spent on picking that needle out of the haystack of applications and minimize the risk of making a bad hire.

On average, startup founders spend a third of their time on recruitment and hiring. By instituting thoughtful systems, you will become more effective and efficient as you grow your team and build your company.
