New opportunities and challenges are thrown at you every day at HubSpot, especially in recruiting. In the last two and a half years, I’ve hired for almost 20 distinct roles across our services, customer support, and finance teams. I’ve hired across levels of seniority, office location, and technical experience. I’ve learned that I have to be ready for anything, and this summer, I learned a tough lesson. I learned that I was not ready for the challenge of hiring another recruiter onto my own team.
