Hire Attitude, Train Skills

When stepping into the professional world, it is of utmost importance, especially for freshers, to be aware of what one must have in them to be hired. Visakh Viswambharan shares his insight about what he looks out for when hiring for his own start-up.

Hire Attitude, Train Skills!

Making sure the candidate is culturally fit, the first thing that Visakh and his team seek out in an intern is their attitude. They have accepted the fact that they cannot expect a fresher to be highly skilled and so, not too much importance is given to the skills. They feel that skills can be taught easily, but attitude cannot.

Giving preference to candidates who have interned elsewhere, they keep in mind the education stats of the candidate and if they make a good fit for them in terms of speaking their language. They want candidates who keep up with the trends, in terms of what’s happening in the industry or following some known studios, developers, designers, brands etc.

When it comes to looking out for hiring fresh talent, Visakh strongly believes that if a fresher is not hungry to find a job, then they might as well not go after them. Addressing all applications hitting their website, they sometimes do approach training institutions and universities when hiring freshers in bulk.
