of a Start-Up

Start-Up Stang Challenge

Quickly evolving idea behind the business requires to be elaborated and executed
quickly... but the start-up misses employees and has a lack of skills; it has to
attract new employees quickly without a deep knowledge of the local job market

The pool of employees willing to accept risks and start working for the start-up is
limited; they usually work for the start-up or develop products on themselves

The start-up has the idea, but it has no skills to hire new employees. It has no
name on the job market, no one knows that the new company hires and has
interesting job openings

Most start-up founders have no clear idea what jobs they need to run the
company successfully ... they look for universal soldiers, which are a scarce
resource on the job market

The start-up company oers a lot of adventures, but it oers a lot of the
uncertainty, as well

Start-up company cannot use the benets of the internal recruitment, it has to
hire all new employees externally

Finally, it has no the recruitment strategy and it has no knowledge of the best
performing recruitment sources for the company

Recruitment Strategy
for the start-up company

The start-up has no time to dene the state-ofthe-art recruitment strategy, it has to act
quickly... it has its own style and way to
announce vacancies

The start-up has to use the direct recruitment


channels and sources, which impact and
inuence thousands of people to nd those few
exceptional, who are not worried to accept risks

Humor ... it is the best recruitment strategy for


the new company; it has to spread info about
