Hiring Tips Every Startup Will Want to Know

Posted on Feb 11, 2013

When you are starting up a company, you are most likely very busy and overwhelmed with every little aspect of running the company. You may be the CEO, HR director, advertising manager, and more—wearing many different hats until you have the funds to hire employees for your business. When you finally start looking to fill important positions, you may be in a hurry to get them filled fast. However, if you do not have the resources of a large corporation when it comes to hiring employees, it can leave your business vulnerable.

Sometimes, someone looks good on paper—maybe too good—but warning signs get ignored, and that person is hired too fast. Sadly, one dishonest employee can hurt your business. With this in mind, it is wise to follow these tips when hiring for your startup in order to obtain great workers:

  • Personally connect with the candidates before you decide to hire them. It is easy to rely on technology tools to converse or check a candidate’s resume; however, a face-to-face interview is a much better way to judge a candidate’s honesty. 
  • Use social media to your advantage. It is important to use social media to find job candidates, but you should not trust everything you read on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook.  It is a good idea to cross check a candidate’s social media sites with his or her resume to see if you can spot some inconsistencies. 
  • Do your research. It is important to look into the candidate’s credentials through a search engine for confirmation and to talk with a candidate’s references and make sure everything checks out.
