Do you know what it is that you want before you start recruiting?

You’ve gone to the effort of writing a job description, creating some online adverts or engaging a recruiter to find you someone, but have you really thought through who your business needs? "Of course” I hear you cry. “Why would we bother doing all those things if we didn’t know what we needed to recruit for?” But I hate to break it to you.  There are many businesses who start the process of recruiting, only to change their mind about what they want half way through the process. This year…See More

Are some people too good to hire for your business?

Posted on November 10, 2017 at 8:00am 0 Comments

I recently came across a story of a product manager who had come from an agile software startup with ten employees and they were interviewing for new positions and one of the businesses that they had spoken to was a software business with about one hundred employees.
