Tactical Hiring for your Creative Department

Peggy Shell explains why.

December 8, 2015

Look for relevant and effective project work and, very critically, someone who has demonstrated experience managing a team and is not just an individual contributor. Look for someone who has increasingly gained a significant level of project responsibility and is still curious to learn new technology. The most predictably successful candidate has had previous small company or startup experience or worked in a startup environment within a large company. Hiring someone who is simply “eager to join the startup world” with no relatable experience is probably too risky and unproven in a world that is faster-paced, and where directions and priorities often change. As we know, it’s a different beast.
