Question: Where are the best places to hire great employees? What’s your process?
Answer: Luckily for me in heading a social media agency, I’m seen as a thought leader in the space and therefore I’m at a point in my career where great hires are coming to me. However, speaking more practically, I would suggest to those looking to hire “great” people to start utilizing tactics such as using Twitter Search. Conversations are being had all over the world about every subject there is. Start searching for people talking about the areas of work you’re looking to hire in. If you’re smart about it, you can easily whittle down your search based on both subject and location. The truth is, and consequently the problem, is that people are lazy and aren’t willing to put in the effort.
