How recruiting changes over time and how to respond
Hey A, welcome to NoVA. I've had a good amount of time to think about talent and recruiting since leaving Resonate last year. What we did right and wrong. My general conclusion is that most companies continue to massively undervalue drive, passion, motivation, energy - and overvalue domain expertise. Most companies even pay a premium to the wrong group - those with domain expertise. Reality I've experienced in my life of changing tech sectors every 5 or so years is that for someone strong it takes about 3-4 months to deeply understand a new market. But you can't 'train' someone to be more invested, more engaged, more willing to work the weekend, etc.
Hi Auren - great post - really enjoyed it! I think the 4-day work week will be one of the great recruiting advantages for high-paid workers going forward. Have you spent any time investigating? Would be curious to hear your perspective.
