How much of your time do you spend recruiting/hiring each week, and do you feel that it is too much or too little?
This is something I've struggled to find a good balance for the past few years. I've hired over 25 salespeople in my career, and there are times when I feel like it's almost all that I do, and I'm over-allocating my time to it. Other times when I feel like I don't do it enough and I feel like we're not bringing in talent fast enough.
I know a lot of this depends on how developed your internal TA team is. Huge difference if you're the one filing through resumes and setting up your own phone screens (been there, it really sucks) -- where recruiting becomes a 4 hr/day part of your job during hiring sprints.
I'm at the point now where I'm taking a solid 7-8 interviews / week, and it's taking up a solid 7-8 hours / week, which feels like a lot. But I get that recruiting is important and arguably the most valuable thing company leaders can do.
Where are you at?
