Where are you finding your next sales person?

Hello Bravado Family,


My name is Dan Richards, I’m the Sales and Marketing Manager at a B2B building recovery service company in San Francisco called Ideal. I’m currently preparing to start the search for my next sales person and I’m extremely interested in how the hiring market is out in the San Francisco Bay Area.


For those who have recently hired someone or is currently looking for someone to hire, where did you look to find your sales person and for those who are currently looking, how is your search going?

Dan -We are hiring mostly in NYC and have found that referrals are the best and most reliable source.  Posting any job listing on LI seems to be the worst (or best depending on how you look @ it), way to get an influx of resumes. That's how I landed @KINETIC - referral from the director of Demand Gen.

We built an internal tool, a sales recruitment app based on gamification, It makes the reps show their ability to adapt to a certain persona and specific situations. 
We will be releasing it as a spin-off (So excited about that)
