Oct 24, 2018 Startup Team
This year, Slush is emphasizing recruitment and taking steps to simplify the process for startups specifically. We admit it: Slush isn’t the first place you think of when you want to hire your first employees – or your hundredth for that matter. However, with our in-house built Slush Matchmaking Tool open for everyone this year, mixed with our unusually motivated and skilled crowd, there is immense potential in the talent pool that’s on its way to the event.
But enough of the promotional blabber. Here’s how the whole thing works in practice.
It’s a good idea to take some time to study the vast pool of candidates before the event as the talent pool is bigger than ever. Startups can also search for relevant people to them in the attendee pool without the attendees “interest” and request meetings to find matching future employees who fit your culture, company, and story.
As everyone has access to the Matchmaking Tool, there will be a wide variety of talent to browse through. Starting from young talent with our students and volunteers to people with +15 years experience, we’ve got all the bases covered.
This year Slush has more content for your Talent and People teams than ever before. The full potential of matchmaking is joined by our excellent stage program and side-event attendees are also represented in the talent pool. For the benefit of us all, please bring your recruiters (and talent!) to Slush this year. You will not regret it.
Finally, today we have opened the first part of the Matchmaking Tool for you to create a profile. You won’t be able to start matching with people just yet, but we’ll keep all ticket holders informed when that happens!
