Notes From the Hiring Front
Chief Content Officer Jon Gelberg shares hiring tips
Our company is in the fortunate position of growing at a significant rate. We have more than doubled in size in the past year and anticipate the same rate of growth over the next year. Not a day goes by when we don’t have at least one candidate in the office seeking out a job in one of our many departments.
For an entrepreneurial company, few decisions are more important than hiring decisions. Every hire is an investment in money, time and effort. A single bad hire can result in a significant setback to a business. A great hire, on the other hand, can be a godsend to a small business.
No employer has a perfect record when it comes to hiring. There will always be candidates that seem like a perfect fit and then turn out to be duds… or worse.
At Blue Fountain Media, we’ve been fortunate enough to make some tremendous hires, but we’ve also had our share of mistakes. Over the years, though, we’ve gotten much better at identifying individuals both with the talents we are looking for and the personal qualities we seek in our team members.
