The man, the myth, the legend : recruiting the entrepreneur (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sedan 2011 finns entreprenörskap inskrivet i läroplanen för grundskolan. Mycket teori finns om entreprenören och entreprenörskap, men lite forskning finns som berör anställning av entreprenörer. Med den här kvalitativa studien ville vi bidra till ökad förståelse för om och hur entreprenören rekryteras till en traditionell anställning, där vi med traditionell anställning avsett entreprenören som arbetstagare. Studien genomfördes dels genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med två rekryterare och dels genom textanalys av nio platsannonser inom olika yrkesområden. Hela studien följer uppdelningen mellan egenskapsperspektivet respektive beteendeperspektivet. Dessa teman är valda med hänsyn tagen till de olika teoretiska inriktningarna kring entreprenörskap men också till olika ansatser inom rekryteringsteori. När vi påbörjade studien trodde vi att vi skulle mötas med en negativ inställning till att anställa entreprenörer. Studiens slutsats blev dock att entreprenören är eftertraktad att anställa, framför allt för dennes egenskaper, men att entreprenörskapsbegreppet ställer till en del praktiska problem för själva rekryteringen.

Abstract [en]

Since 2011, entrepreneurship is established in the Swedish curriculum for primary school. Much theory can be found on the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship. There is, however, not as much research available regarding employment of the entrepreneur. With this qualitative study, we strived to contribute to an extended understanding of if and how the entrepreneur is recruited to an employment. The study was carried out by partly semistructured interviews with two recruiters, and partly by text analysis of nine listings in different professions. The whole study follows a sectioning between the trait perspective and the behavior perspective. These themes were chosen in consideration of the different entrepreneurial theoretical orientations, but also in regard to different approaches within recruitment theory. When the study began, we thought that we would be met by a negative attitude against hiring entrepreneurs. The conclusion of the study, however, became that the entrepreneur is sought after to hire, especially for its characteristics, but that the entrepreneurial concept poses some practical problems for the recruitment itself.
