WE HIRE FOR ATTITUDE AND TRAIN FOR SKILL.
To us, ‘who’ the person is as important as “what they know.” Of course, knowledge is important. But we’re also looking for someone who craves more knowledge, someone who can grow with us.
So the right mix of a little edginess (we don’t do dull), confidence (we are big on that!), passion (we are suckers when it comes to this) and a certain genuineness (we dig authenticity) almost make us go hallelujah!
We even miss a beat if we happen to chance upon a “warrior spirit”, one who is forward-looking and isn’t afraid to throw off the gloves and reinvent everything if the situation demands it.
In short, ‘compelling.’ And when we find people like that we hire them!
If anyone can make up in attitude what they lack in skill we are willing to train them. Why? Because what a person knows can change, but who they are inside doesn’t.
