In a small shop, human and financial resources are equally precious commodities.  As a result, it is essential that you have a Dream Team in place to leverage your limited resources and implement a robust, well-rounded development program.  A single full-time employee must be nimble, flexible and capable of tackling the myriad of tasks thrown his or her direction.  Finding those perfect individuals can be a daunting task.  A single post on Craigslist produces hundreds of responses, but how can you tell if “the one” is in the stack?  In this se learn how to assess your Dream Team needs, search for, identify and hire the ideal development staff member. 


By the end of this session, participants will be able to:  


  1. Conduct a development team needs assessment, identifying the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to build the optimal team.
  2. Develop a job description that attracts the optimal team member.
  3. Create a robust screening system that identifies the best potential members while still being in compliance with various non-discrimination hiring laws.
