5 Places Startups Can Find Talent

A startup always starts as a solution to a problem, but that solution can’t be executed without the vital ingredient that is top talent.

The process of recruiting talent can be overwhelming, but it’s actually the most important thing you can do for the growth of your startup. When screening talent, you as the startup recruiter need to learn what experiences your candidates have that both prove their familiarity with the role, as well as their ability to perform well down the road.

Ask about their experiences when working on a demanding project. Be sure to hone on how they were able to contribute to that project. A smart way to gauge a candidate’s capabilities is by asking them to create work for you during the interview, for example, drafting a line of code to perform a certain function or even just bringing their work samples to the in-person and presenting them to you.

Whatever you do in the interviewing process to find that perfect fit you need to start with step one and find candidates.  Advertising an open position of a job site could work, but your competitors are doing the same thing. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a complete countdown list of 5 places you should be looking for your Startup Top Talent.
