How To Make Better Hires Using Candidate Personas

Don't you wish it was easier to figure out what kinds of people you needed to hire? Wouldn't it be better if someone could turn to you and say "oh, you're looking for a top-notch marketer? Here's the ideal profile of who you should hire."

Well, we do have an eBook about the top 6 most vital startup roles that any entrepreneur should hire (hint hint), but even the geniuses here at McQuaig can't tell you the absolute specifics of the people you need to hire for your particular business. What we can do is make the process easier for you to get through.

So - to speed things up, we've created a Candidate Persona Template! Use this single-pager to sketch out an idea of what your candidates should look like as you start hiring for new positions. You'll go beyond the standard work experience stuff and get a little more in-depth on what kind of personality traits and other more auxiliary characteristics would make for a strong candidate. Then, you can compare applicants against the persona you've created to see if there are any initial matches.
