“The employer generally gets the employees he deserves.” J. Paul Getty.
The watershed moment in any business is when you as an entrepreneur, turn to your partner and say, “We need to hire someone.”
Hiring is one of the toughest skills to obtain. I use a very technical, specific method to hire law clerks. Everyone — from the receptionist through the senior staff — weighs in and we see if they will be able to join the culture and then we test their technical skills and their writing. I use a completely different, softer approach to find a lateral hire; its more about the interpersonal skills.
