The Art of Recruiting

In traditional Guy Kawasaki style he provides us an introduction into The Art of Recruiting via a top 10.

  1. Hire better than yourself
  2. Hire infected people
  3. Ignore the irrelevant
  4. Double check your intuition
  5. Check independent references
  6. Apply the Shopping Center Test
  7. Use all your weapons
  8. Sell all the decision makers
  9. Wait to compensate
  10. Don’t assume you’re done

Personnally I like numbers 6 (very cool), 7 (see next post) & 10 (oh the retention and engagement thing starts from Day 1).
