Abstract

Prior to the rise of virtual teams, hiring the right person for a job usually meant one of two things—limiting the pool of candidates or spending big bucks. Unless a company is willing to spend to fly people in for interviews or to pay for company moves, it must hire within commuting distance of its facility. This may work out okay if you are in an employer’s market and located in an area that has many people with the skill set for which you are looking (e.g., engineers in Silicon Valley). But what if it’s an employee’s market, and you’re located in an area that lacks employees with your required skill set? Most likely, you’ll end up compromising on what you really wanted in an employee. There is a big difference between the best available software engineer in Acworth, Georgia, and the best available software engineer in the Untied States.
