Hiring for a startup is not as easy as that. While some startups hire people massively without really thinking about the quality of the applicant (they take them just because they have a lot of work), that is really not the thing to do!
Look for candidates who are willing to grow
Don’t just ask candidates how hard they’re willing to work. Ask them specific interview questions that help you determine whether they’re willing to invest in themselves throughout their tenure with your company.
Create a culture you can be proud of
If you can’t honestly say that you’re proud of your company’s culture, you’re going to find it difficult to convince top talent to get on board.
Look for candidate who have a similar psychology
Effective hiring is a largely a matter of psychology, skills and educational background aside. You want to hire people who are reliable, trustworthy, and effective; people who will grow WITH your company.
Follow a simple recruitment process
Don’t do the three-four-five round of interview… When you know you want a person from the first interview, just take them!
