Startups May Have Trouble Luring Top Execs
from the is-that-so-bad? dept
A new study is out saying that startups these days are having trouble convincing top executives to fill their job openings, since these execs prefer the stability and high salaries of a large company job. I have a couple of thoughts on this. Thought number 1 is that, in this job market, I’m surprised any company is having that much difficulty finding qualified employees at any level. Thought number 2 (the more important thought) is that if the executives are looking for stability and security, they’re probably the wrong executive for the startup anyway. You want someone who really believes in the idea and thinks that they can turn the startup into something great. You’re not looking for someone who is looking for a regular paycheck and a 9-to-5. That’s not what startups are about.
