Sourcing technical talent, especially in areas where many software development companies are looking for the same skill set can be… challenging. When everyone is looking for the same thing, the playing field becomes so level there’s just no way to stand out anymore. There are other alternatives, though.
When you’re ‘stalking’ a candidate online, be sure to stay within the bounds of propriety, and don’t be too quick to judge. Look to their online presence to let you know whether they know how to manage an online brand, or look at whether they’re a culture fit. You can even use your ‘stalking’ to validate their claims.
When you want a rockstar employee – a real super star – you need to lift your game. Great employees already have a pretty good deal. They need the right kind of bait dangled in front of them to even consider applying for your job over all the others available (including the one they currently have!).
It doesn’t matter at what stage your business is expanding; deciding to bring on a new employee is a monumental decision – particularly if you’re a growing startup. Bringing on a new employee not only changes your bank balance, it affects the day-to-day culture of business activities and the future direction of your team.
