The golden rule in hiring, according to Mark Zuckerberg

Thursday 28 May, 2015


He is the founder of one of the most successful companies in the world, has a net worth of around $35 billion at the ripe age of 30, and has made computer science, HTML and coding sexy. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook has a lot to offer, not to mention advice on what employers should look for in a prospective employee. And his golden rule of advice for hiring:


“I will only hire someone to work directly for me if I would work for that person”.


Zuckerberg’s suggestion sounds almost too simple, but it is logical and it is smart. A potential employee has to be a right fit for the company, it’s culture and the team, just as much as for the role they are filling. So when hiring it might be worth putting Zuckerberg’s advice into practice and ask yourself would you be happy working for this person. 


Hiring does not have to be overcomplicated, it is about finding the right person with the right skills and qualifications and whose profile is a perfect fit for the company, it’s culture and the rest of the team.


In fact, hiring can be a relatively simple, logical and smart process itself. With the right technology, talented candidate pool and an understanding of the marketplace companies like OneShift take the challenge out of the challenge. OneShift uses ideal candidate credentials to match prospective employees with hiring employers.
