Friends newsletter: Hiring advice
By Nick Gray • Issue #28 • View online
I love hiring great people.
But it’s time-consuming and energy draining.
Today Museum Hack has 13 full-time employees, 45 part-time employees, and a bunch of great contractors.
We’re looking for an inbound sales manager and another inbound sales rep. Both are work-from-home remote positions!
The best piece of advice I have if you’re hiring: use screening questions.
I f***ing love screening questions.

When we started getting over 200 applicants per job for our Renegade Tour Guide roles, we needed a way to filter and find the best candidates quickly. 
This is a long article that I wrote all about how and why you should use screening questions in your hiring process. Includes examples you can start using today.

2 weeks ago I got to fly on a private jet from Bordeaux, France to Manchester for my friend David Karp’s birthday. It was AWESOME!
COOL TOOL: Zentri Metal Fidget Spinner
I wanted to see what the hype was all about. I got this metal fidget spinner based on the Wirecutter review. It is great. Feels solid.

SUPPLEMENT: Doc Parsley's Sleep Remedy
I liked this so much I bought it twice. Sometimes it works great.

I hesitated adding this because it looks sorta scammy. And I think I’m anti-melatonin. But YOLO, I’ve been taking this powder almost every night for the past month. Now maybe I’ve built up a tolerance. Recommended to me by Kevin Wilke.
I’m not ready to full-on recommend it yet. But if you’re experimenting with trying to sleep better, this is interesting. I’d guess that the active ingredients for sleep support are melatonin, magnesium, GABA, and L-Tryptophan.

Thanks for reading.
Speaking of reading: I’m currently reading the book “Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah and enjoying it.
Any good book suggestions? Reply back and let me know.

p.s. Tucked out of the way in the basement of the American Wing at the Met in NYC is this small closet installation. Recommended on your next Met visit. Sent to me from my friend Noel Hamilton: Watch Sara Berman’s Closet on Vimeo
