I just filled out a survey about ideal employer. And while I did it I had an idea:
Focus on crucial people. Actively find them, pull them in, then give them two privileges.
1. Ask them for ONE incredible person they want to work with. Name, surname, contact point. They recommend, you go to hire.
2. Tell them to name two juniors they want to teach. These two get job offer, with salary within junior’s ranges but influenced by “how good/skilled/enter your criteria here of a junior is that person”, rated by the recommender.
Now, with one crucial guy, you possibly get two more and next crucial guy.
