How to Hire

The Essential Guide to Recruit & Retain the Right People

Hiring has never been more challenging. There are fewer qualified applicants with more employers competing for them. And most business owners are stuck trying to figure this out on their own. Most books on hiring are written for HR professionals.

How to Hire was written to give owners & operators a playbook to achieve hiring success. How to Hire covers everything you need to hire the right people, including:

  • Clarifying mission/vision/values
  • Understanding who you need
  • Attracting high-quality candidates
  • Running an effective hiring process
  • Building a winning culture

The strategies and processes described in this book are proven. Clint Smith has worked closely with hundreds of business owners to develop them. This playbook is the foundation for his company’s hiring software, which is used by over 17,000 companies to hire over 100,000 people per year.


How to Hire was written with one word in mind: ACTION. We created a website with all of the resources you need to attract, hire, and onboard the right people for your team, including:

  • Ideal candidate profiles
  • Job description templates
  • Interview guides
  • Onboarding checklists
  • Training plans
