It’s a funny world. Scroll through a page of job listings, and you’ll soon discover the things employers say are important to them in a potential candidate: lots of experience, relevant qualifications, and skill. But when you think about the things that really make people productive, these cookie-cutter lists seem somewhat naive.
For one, experience is no guarantee of productivity or effectiveness in any role. A candidate could have five years of experience doing a terrible job for some other firm. Likewise with qualifications: knowledge rarely leads in a straight line to application.
