In this episode…

Finding great employees can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Entrepreneurs and recruiters alike are constantly looking for ways to make the hiring process more effective and efficient. So, wouldn’t it be nice if you had a list of potential candidates ready to go every time a role opened up? 

Michael Schweitzer actually recommends creating that list in advance — way in advance. Rather than waiting until he needs to hire someone, Michael is constantly meeting with talented individuals and planning how they could contribute to the company. He finds it’s much more effective than the old-fashioned “post-and-pray” approach of using online job boards, not just for your time, but for your team.

On this episode of the Talent Wins podcast, Chris Mursau talks with Michael Schweitzer, a seasoned financial services executive, who’s built and led winning teams for companies like HSBC, UBS, and Merrill Lynch. Together, they discuss how to develop an ongoing list of great candidates, the essential attributes Michael looks for in future employees, why his final interviews are three hours long, and the importance of creating opportunities for the next generation of leadership.
