What is a Unicorn employee?
“A unicorn employee is someone who checks all the boxes on a job description. They have the right amount of experience, the perfect industry background, an ideal college degree; they’re exactly who you’re looking for. You visualize this employee as a self starter; jumping right in with little to no training and melding seamlessly with team members to start achieving results quickly.”
