    There is NO such thing as a candidate who requires NO training.

    Every. Single. Hire. will HAVE to be trained.

    This is not b/c they don't know what they're doing - it's because they've never done it YOUR way. They have to learn how you like things worded, where you store which information, what you call things internally, and more.

    When you're hiring remember that ANY hire is going to take 8-12 weeks to get "up to speed". Then add that time on to how long you want to look for your 🦄.

    I would also add that part of that training can include explicit opportunities for the org to learn from the new hire, too. Very few companies do this, but in my experience as a hiring manager, it not only helps to engage someone in onboarding, there's also this limited window where they are going to see things you don't, and that's tremendously valuable.
