Employers and recruiters tend to prefer passive candidates because they have the right skill sets, have the right qualifications and have a history of good employment. But for a startup working environment, could active candidates be the ideal employee?
When it comes down to it, what you want to hire is the right person with the rights skills at the right level. But when you enter the market with your startup, the budget is often an issue. So hiring the ‘ideal’ employee isn’t always possible.
