If your recruitment process needs some work, you’re not alone. Many cybersecurity startups are in a similar situation. The key to overcoming recruitment challenges is usually a shift in mindset.
The first step to fixing an inefficient recruitment process is understanding the difference between hiring and recruitment. You’re “hiring” when robust training programs are available for new employees or if the role you’re seeking to fill requires limited-to-no experience in the field. When hiring, hiring managers post job descriptions, interview an array of motivated applicants and select the individuals that seem to be the best fit. Under these circumstances, the pool of available human resources is relatively substantial.
