Editor's Notes

  • The goals are pretty clear…lofty, no doubt…but it was absolutely critical that we hit these hiring goals because all of our revenue targets depended on us succeeding.Allie had a really small team to tackle this problem. It was essentially her, one other sourcer, and a coordinator. There was also this tricky constraint…Our team of 20 sales reps literally couldn’t afford to spend 4-5 hours a day doing interviews. Their productivity would be crippled. This was not a fun position for Allie to be in, but I had full confidence that she’d find a great way to do it.
