Hiring is tough these days. When you have an opening, the pressure to hire great people can be intense and stressful.
It takes time to find people. It takes time to check out their references. It takes time to figure out if they are a good fit for your team. After all that, you have to negotiate a financial package that works for both of you. The process can take a lot of your precious time. If you don’t act quickly enough, it’s easy to lose top talent to your competitors.
