How to Hire the Right Person

By 9ut3rm0r20

Finding the right people to fill out your new business can be hard and you want only the best. Compiled from more than 500 interviews, the article “How to Hire the Right Person” by Adam Bryant of The New York Times brings together some of the best hiring advice from CEO’s he’s interviewed.

From questions to setting Bryant breaks down some of the best advice he’s gotten over the years. Some of the advice includes walking candidates around the office, paying attention to what questions they ask, assigning them a take-home task, and more.

The appeal of having a partner in business is strong. Some entrepreneurs feel more comfortable having someone to share the work of starting a business with, but research shows that might not give the company the best chances of survival.

Research from New York University and the Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania found that companies with a solo CEO were actually more likely to succeed. A story from Inc. breaks down the method used to derive the findings, but it turns out going it alone might actually be an advantage.

This article rounds up some of the best advice CEOs had for college graduates this year, but most of it can also be applied to new entrepreneurs. Both recent grads and entrepreneurs are starting a new chapter in their careers and the advice in “CEOs Share Their Best Advice for College Graduates,” can be helpful to them both.

The ability to listen, have patience, and be flexible were all traits CEOs highlighted in their advice to students. After years of experience and earning the title “CEO” they’ve learned a thing or two that can be helpful to those looking to follow in their footsteps.

This article is based on advice from CEO and founder of the woman-powered app Mogul, Tiffany Pham. It’s a compilation of advice from her book and interviews with Bustle. While her book offers far more insight into how she got to be where she is today, “7 Tips For Aspiring Female Entrepreneurs, According To A CEO,” gives a quick preview.

Pham’s advice is centered around her experiences and lessons she’s learned over the years that could help other female entrepreneurs. Her book is called “You Are a Mogul: How to Do the Impossible, Do It Yourself, and Do It Now.”
