Look for these key traits before offering your next position to a potential candidate.

Question: What one quality do you believe all hires need to work for a startup?

Business Development Skills

“All startup business positions become a wider role than expected and quickly evolve and change. In addition, a self-starting attitude is vital. Therefore, business development skills (the ability for the person to develop their role themselves) are essential.”

A Desire to Learn

“Working at a startup and working at a corporate job is very different. In a startup environment, you will likely be asked to be innovative in finding solutions, to do a variety of tasks, and encouraged to work smarter, not harder. Having a desire and openness to learn and be innovative is a must.”
