In order to make a startup successful, lots of planning and strategy must be done, this includes hiring the right people. In a start-up, It’s important to surround yourself with colleagues that have the skills and knowledge to get the job done, but it is equally important that they have the same passion and drive needed to continue to grow the business alongside you. Someone with the mental toughness to keep trying in the face of challenges and failures while keeping their passion for the work they do. This is the type of person fast-moving startups need.
Technical skills needed for the job are essential of course but be sure to look deeper qualities- like patience, organization, multi-tasking, perseverance, self-discipline and most importantly passion. These qualities can directly translate into the success of your company. Having a small business frequently involves people doing multiple tasks, for example your marketing person may also handle your social media, and perhaps sales or business development, depending on their skill set.
So, How do you find these Individuals? Read Below.
People with passion for the company and job will show signs from the very beginning, they will go above and beyond simply filling out an application. These are the people that follow up and put effort into landing an interview. If a person puts energy into calling or emailing for an interview, it’s a good sign that they will put equal energy and passion into the job itself. During the interview you can often spot a quality candidate by asking questions about challenges they’ve faced professionally as well as questions about professional victories and failures. You could also ask them about their hobbies and interests. If they like to spend their free time on challenging activities, this may show they have the right skills you want to have on your team.
Passion and drive are important qualities for any startup, so it’s important to ensure you’re interviewing for these personality traits. However, keep in mind that passion is obviously not the only thing needed for success in a position. A potential employee needs to have the right technical skills and job-specific experience to excel at their role.
