General principles that make a candidate ideal:

  • Clearly highly intelligent demonstrated via previous experience, education or even an out of work interest
  • Someone with something peculiar about them, something you might not see everyday
  • The client does not discriminate based on age. People with relatively few years of experience that have already achieved impressive things are particularly interesting to them
  • Top University graduates will often obtain an interview as they've showcased significant ability to obtain a spot there
  • The team is very driven in it's approach to work, it's important someone is in a position in life to have that drive and work ethic

For these early employees options are on the table so the right person is important to the client.
