One of the key factors for the success of a startup is hiring the right kind of people for the right kind of work. This is easier said than done. Not only do you have to seek out the right people, you will have to convince them to join you. Here are 4 strategies that can work for you:
1 Chalk out the company core values
To begin with, clarify out the core values of your company. This will help you understand the kind of pace you want to set for your company and in turn the kind of people you want to recruit.
2 Determine the talents you need
Get clear about what sort of manpower you need. Decide on the skillsets that you require for your company. For example, do you need people who are good at data analysis? Or perhaps it’s someone with managerial capabilities to lead your young team. Find out which area that you need filled out in order for things to progress.
3 Move fast
Today, wherever you look, there is a startup. You are not alone. So move fast to hire the people of your choice before they get picked up by someone else.
4 Find out about the candidate before recruiting
You don’t want to know what is already written in the resume. Ask the candidates questions about themselves. It is very important to know things like whether the candidate is up to taking the challenge of a startup or whether the candidate will be able to survive the uncertainty and pressure, etc.
