Hiring Marketing People

Lately, I’ve been pretty busy interviewing people. I love it because I really like working for a company that is growing and inviting in new blood. However, this article by James Rogers in B2B Magazine hit a nerve. I just interviewed someone this week who had all the technical skills. He was very competent. But walking out, I knew it just wasn’t a fit. A big part of it was cultural fit, but another bit part was what James brings out in this article. I need someone to work with who has “innovation and agility.” Even in this wide open market (from a hiring perspective), it can be a hard thing to find.
