5 things tech companies should know:
1./ Lead roles in societies and sports team memberships shows resilience and work life balance.
2./ Internships at startups, a good sign they know what they are letting themselves in for, and often will have people skills and real life team experience.
3./ Any sales experience, direct selling, will show they have had the opportunity to get over the fear of being rejected. ( I thought that’s what Tinder was for )
4./ Decent Russell group University might be a good sign.
5./ Belief in the mission. See’s you through the hard times.
7 things that candidates should think of or know or ask.
