A great perspective on some of the pitfalls of recruitment from Welsey Verhoeve.
I think of the costs associated with bad hires (time, energy, money) as a tuition fee for the lessons I’ve learned. And boy, lets just say I now have a PhD in hiring.
Lessons learned include hiring based on friend potential – that’s the one I fall foul of, and I’m due to start this process again soon as I’m looking to hire another member of our team. Wish me luck.
I liked his post about working in coffee shops instead of your office. The change of scene and fewer distractions certainly work for me.
