The following is an example of a Hiring Scorecard, which was put together as an example for a blog post on recruiting. It shows the scorecard that was used to hire a Matrix Partners Associate.
Lead proactive research, investigation, and analysis of specific sectors identified by the partnership. Create a systematic approach to assessing these sectors and populating the top of the funnel in these areas.
|1||Map the identified sectors: company, founder, funding, employees, location, etc.|
|2||Collect and analyze normalized information across mapped companies to allow for sorting and comparison|
|3||Conduct research on selected companies from the market map including: using industry tools, speaking with companies directly, reviewing PR, connecting with angel and seed investors|
|4||Weekly meetings with GPs on assigned sectors to review market map and next steps|
|1||Exceptional Distillation. Can quickly summarize large amounts of information and knows the key points to highlight.|
|2||Analytical + Product Minded. Understands the numbers and key metrics, but also has a sense for the look and feel of the product.|
|3||Adaptable. Able to jump between sectors and quickly gain a baseline understanding of new sectors we want to explore.|
|4||Self Motivated. Works independently between meetings to drive projects forward with little oversight.|
|5||Intellectually Curious. Finds something of interest, independent of the sector being researched.|
|6||Clear Communicator. Both internally with GPs and externally with start-ups we’re researching.|
|7||Loves Technology. Natural affinity for technology and start-ups|
