Description

Don't rely on instincts alone.

Hiring. Is. King.

The lesson seems so basic. Yet time after time, good companies stumble and lose their stride - just when they were poised for rapid growth. Why? Because their leaders treated hiring as a tedious chore. They posted an ad hoc ad. Took the first person with the right skills. Hired for immediate needs, rather than future flourishing.

In Hire Smart from the Start, Dave Carvajal distills lessons gained from 20 years in the trenches, building out and staffing two enormously successful Internet startups and helping firms like Tumblr, Buddy Media, and Shutterstock land the talent they need to reach their greatest potential.

Whether you're a high-tech entrepreneur taking a startup public, or a food truck vendor with a concept that's taking off, this book offers a proven formula to help you:

  • Find candidates whose values and working style fit your business
  • Spot the 5 types of applicants you should never, ever hire
  • Motivate "reach" candidates to leave their jobs and take a chance on your vision
  • Develop meaningful incentives that make people stay
  • And more

Accelerate success: hire smart from the start. This book shows you how.

Good resource for anyone in hiring position

Many of the points are poignant and thought provoking, and I do think this is a great resource, not only for Entrepreneurs, but anyone who may be involved in hiring decisions. Might be a personal issue, but I had some issues staying focused, possibly due to the voice tone being on the lower range.

Good for entrepreneurs, less so for other leaders

There is some interesting stuff but targeted too specifically to entrepreneurs. The narrator is good, although some parts of the book aren't well suited to audio. Worth it at the deal price but less so for a whole credit. #Audible1

Should have read this ten years ago!

Great review of all the things to consider when you need to hire new people. Well, worth the time.

If you suck at HR and hiring this is a great book.

I am a small business owner and this book opened my eyes to the reality of prospecting, hiring and hopefully retaining good people.

A Real Match

Goes a lot deeper than if the candidate can get the job done.. Makes sense for long term employee retention.
