If you had to hire people for your business, what are your thoughts on having a preference edge cases that less desirable by most of their job market, for the sake of helping them get employment, and because you empathize with them?
I know that's already putting a risk on top of the existing startup risks but hear me out. I am a software developer with a "too many years as a junior" stigma at job interviews. Coupled with people telling me I have traits on the autism spectrum (although I never have gotten a doctor's diagnosis), that leads to a very bad time job searching. So that has driven me to do more personal projects, hopefully monetize one or two if possible. And if nobody wants to hire me, it's their loss.
But in the rare chance I do become successful at running my own business I want to give back to the people that are just like me, who had excessive troubles finding work because they don't fit the usual mold of an ideal candidate.
If you ever thought about hiring your own employees, have you thought about hiring approaches that are better at handling special cases and target less conventional candidates?
