How to Hire Like a Pro

  1. 1. How to Hire Like a Pro<br />The Odd Hiring Practices of Top Leaders & Thinkers<br />
  2. 2. When I hire somebody really senior, competence is the ante. They have to be really smart. But the real issue for me is, are they going to fall in love with Apple? …If they fall in love with Apple…They’ll want to do what’s best for Apple, not what’s best for them.<br />- Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple<br />
  3. 3. It is all one to me if a man comes from Sing Sing Prison or Harvard. We hire a man, not his history.<br />- Henry Ford, Founder Ford Motor Company<br />
  4. 4. Hire people who are better than you are, then leave them to get on with it. Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine.<br />- David Ogilvy, Cofounder of Ogilvy & Mather<br />
  5. 5. We hire good-looking people in our stores. Because good-looking people attract other good-looking people, & we want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don't market to anyone other than that.<br />- Mike Jeffries, CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch Co.<br />
  6. 6. I think the way you do that is by making sure that every person that you hire is like, really good…[Our] recruiting process is optimized for getting the top 5 or 10 percent…[we] can keep the company small. <br />- Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook<br />
  7. 7. I like finding talent. That’s what really turns me on. <br />- Gordon Ramsay, Restaurateur & TV Personality<br />
  8. 8. When hiring key employees, there are only two qualities to look for: judgment and taste. Almost everything else can be bought by the yard.<br />- John W. Gardner, Secretary of Health, Education, & Welfare for LBJ<br />
  9. 9. Before you even think about assessing people for a job, <br />they have to pass through three screens. <br />The first test is for integrity. People with integrity tell the truth, and they keep their word.<br />The second test is for intelligence. The candidate has a strong dose of intellectual curiosity, with a breadth of knowledge to work with or lead other smart people in today's complex world.<br />The third ticket to the game is maturity—the ability to handle stress and setbacks, and enjoy success with equal parts of joy and humility.<br />- Jack Welch, former CEO of GE<br />
  10. 10. Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it.<br />- Henry David Thoreau, Author<br />
  11. 11. Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish. <br />- Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor<br />
