Talk: Recruiting for Indies: How to Attract and Vet Talent

Hiring great people is hard. Hiring great people in a small team with limited time and money is even harder. Unfortunately, the process is often born of last-minute necessity and poorly executed. Successful hiring starts with recruiting, which will be the focus of this talk.

Recruiting is the act of attracting and filtering candidates in order to find and hire the best. Here, you’ll gain insight into how your indie company should position itself to source the widest possible talent pool, and effectively trim it down to its star candidates by standardizing it all into an efficient process that maximizes results.
