You have to pick the people for your organization who don’t shirk away from collaboration and co-operation among themselves. Expertise, experience, track-record, level of commitment and companionability, everything must be scrutinized properly and then, you make the decision to pick a person for your work.
2. Fusion of goals: When you convey your vision and views about your start-up, try to judge the prospective aspirant’s readiness to merge his goals with that of your company. If his career-priorities are aligned with the company’s priorities, then he is the right choice. Frame some questions to dig up his choices and preferences for his career-advancements! If his answers match up to the company’s growth and progression, take him on board!
3. Level of excitement: if the nature of the work at your place excites the prospective employee, he is the right choice to go for. Excitement for work is an essential quality a professional must have. However skilled he may be, if he is not thrilled doing his work, he would not go extra mile to achieve better results for the company.
Building the team for your start-up is a tricky trade, you must tread cautiously. You may find a smaller number of aspirants applying for a job in a start-up due to its uncertain future, but even then, if you find them, make a scrupulous selection!
