Hire "Non-Traditional" People!

Too many hiring managers need to know this. When you make a "safe" hire, you'll get "safe" results.

Hire juniors, they are hungry.

Hire #CareerChangers, they are experienced.

Hire those who lost jobs, they have something to prove.

Hire those with differences (no matter what they are) - they will give your team and product a perspective you're otherwise not getting.

And soon you'll come to realize all of them are just as capable as the 'safe' choice.

*And for the record I have time and time again followed this advice and it's paid off in spades. If you want advice or want to brainstorm, connect with me on LinkedIn and we can chat more about it!
