5 Tips to Finding Talent

5 Tips to Finding Talent

1. Networking and Referrals

Posting on the Internet can be a lengthy process, taking up valuable time that the startup simply does not have. Instead, many startups rely on networking in order to find a candidate that is suited for their company and culture.


Another way that startups find applicants is through referrals, by asking trusted colleagues and friends to directly recommend candidates to them. This tactic kills two birds with one stone: in addition to saving time, the startup is able to pick from a pool of recommended applicants.

2. Unconventional Hiring Methods

Instead of using the typical internet job posting board or job fair, unique hiring methods can separate the best for the masses. For example, Reddit posted a job application for a programmer on their blog: however, instead of the conventional “send us your resume”,

they used a complex programming program, where the answer would yield to an email address. Creative challenges such as these can help determine which applicants are well suited for the company.

3. Type of Applicant

One common debate that arises during the hiring process is whether to choose a specialist or a jack-of-all-trades. Specialists are very good at one skill, while jack-of-all-trades are able to wear a variety of hats and adapt to multiple roles. This question largely depends on the type and the stage of the startup.

For new startups, company owners may prefer to choose individuals that can handle multiple responsibilities. But as the startup grows and stabilizes, they may prefer individuals that can offer specific skills.

4. Immediate Value

The average applicant has a list of skills, interests and experience that they can offer to the company. However, a worthy candidate will provide the startup with an actionable plan, or a summary of how their skills can be directly applied to the company.

Discuss with candidates


Discuss with candidates about what they can immediately offer to the company, in order to get a better idea of whether the applicant is truly qualified.

5. Passion

Nowadays, hiring managers receive applications and resumes from hundreds of qualified applicants, each with their own impressive list of skills and experience. However, the challenge arises from finding an applicant that shares the same passion as the company.

Try to gauge the applicant’s interests, and what motivated them to apply for your company. Finding the right talent for your startup can be a challenge, especially with the increasing number of applicants looking for a job. By considering the following tips, startups can find the best choice possible.

  3. Thank you and welcome to animhut

  4. Good Question, but rather than me Rachel will reply for this ! 

  5. Its hard to overcome partiality in a competitive job market, and this situation can be especially discouraging. But that’s the power of networking: if the individual already has a relationship with the manager, their likelihood of becoming hired is greater, simply given that they already know each other. The best response I can give is to start networking, and build up your network of contacts. Thanks for reading!

  6. Thanks! Which article are you referring to?

  7. Like everything good, it takes time, the point is to continue searching without surrendering. There are many talented people all over the world and why not get 2-3 of them to take care of different categories of particular blog or website.

  8. Number 3 and 5 strike home with me. I can’t tell you the times I see some employee at a job site and there just lost to the world. No passion whatsoever. It makes me wonder is people really do what it takes to hire the right people or just fill in the blanks with whoever. 

  9. Interesting article Sri Ganesh must say your blog articles are really interesting and always unique i am big follower of your blog. keep this hard work going on :)
