Here at the MitchelLake Group we work with a lot of hi-tech startups. We love helping innovative people bring great ideas to life by matching them with other intelligent, innovative people. It’s just what we do.
In the course of working with a great many startups over the years, we have seen the full gamut of approaches to hiring from the good to the bad to the downright ugly. So much so that we could probably publish a list of the top 47 things people do wrong (or right for that matter) when hiring. But since you’re not going to read through a list of 47, I thought I’d highlight a much shorter list of the major mistakes we see startup hiring managers making time and time again. So here are the 4.5 mistakes that many hiring managers are making. Chances are you are doing or have done at least one of these.
