Finding and hiring the right talents for your startup can be quite a challenge. First of all, you need to find them. Secondly, you need to screen them, so you don’t spend entire weeks interviewing people who aren’t qualified. Thirdly there is the interview, which is hard enough on its own. Throughout this process you also need to keep track of all the applicants. Then comes second interviews, rejections, letters, offers, and negotiations. You get the picture: It’s a long, expensive, and time-consuming process. And let’s not forget that the reason you're hiring in the first place is that you are too busy as it is.
Luckily for you, there are many great tools on the market to help make that process easier for the ever-so-busy entrepreneurs.
Portals & Recruitment
There are many options when it comes to creating the right hiring process for your startup, whether you want someone to handle it for you, need help from experienced recruiters, or just want to advertise a traditional job post yourself. Here is a list of job portals and recruitment agencies specialized in the needs of startups. Depending on your location, it’s quite possible that you will find your next superstar through one of these options.
Software for hiring
Figuring out where to post your job description is one thing, managing the huge amounts of applicants is another thing altogether. You should always keep in mind as an entrepreneur that your applicants are potential customers, too and that your brand throughout a hiring process is exposed to a lot of people. That makes it necessary to frame your business the right way and treat every one of your applicants well. A lot of excellent software can help you keep track of your process and make sure that you don’t accidentally forget to send a rejection letter or follow up on an interview.
