A startup always begins with an idea, but as anyone would know an idea cannot be excited without the vital ingredient of talent.
The process of recruiting talent can be overwhelming, but it’s crucial for the growth of a startup. When sifting through candidates, looking at past experiences is critical but also looking at how a candidate can grow with your team is equally or even more critical. Finding a candidate with this growth potential requires a unique interview process.
Ask about their experiences when working on a demanding project. Be sure to hone on how they were able to contribute and their drive with the project. A smart way to gauge a candidate capabilities is by asking them to create work for you during the interview, for example, writing code or presenting a sale pitch.
