Are skills and experience the primary factors when considering a job you'd apply for? Or something else?
Hiring managers and recruiters are often excited to hire that perfect candidate with the right education, right experience, right skills, right credentials, right..., right... Is that really "right?" As an HR professional and hiring manager, I've always been more optimistic and found more success in hiring people who embrace the same kind of values that align with an organization's culture. *** They embrace continuous learning and self-improvement. *** They demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning. *** They're self-aware and know what their strengths and opportunities are. *** AND (big one!), they're open to feedback and develop from them.
I'm not saying that experience and skills don't count. They definitely do, but putting this as the top and only factors in making a job offer can lead to job fit only at the present time and at the present level with limited possibilities of growing into bigger responsibilities in the future. Can you say, "early plateau?" -----> As a job-seeker, what do you look for when considering positions at new organizations? -----> Are values and cultural fit at the top of your list?
