Finding a quality candidate to join your team can be a nerve-wracking experience, says our recruitment expert in this episode. A good fit doesn’t happen automatically. Successful growth is the result of a strategic, multi-step hiring and onboarding process (like the one we teach at Business of Design®!)

In this episode we learn:

  • hiring is a skill, and it requires a process to support it
  • don’t rush to hire a friend, put them through the same process as any other hire
  • a clear job description allows you to focus on the required skills
  • identify the tasks you hate doing and hire someone to do those tasks
  • always have a link to hiring on your website
  • effective training and onboarding is essential for success
  • use a multi-step process to lead to hiring



Positive brings positive.
