Lots of things can be taught, especially if we’re talking skills, but soft skills are something you’re born with. Or, occasionally, born without.
The ultimate candidate is the one with the perfect fit: the employee who brings out the best in their teammates, who wants to learn, who aligns with the company’s mission and is attached to their team’s goals.
We want someone great at their job and at working with a team.
Without being good at what you do, you’re a difficult sell, but if we can’t work with you, then there’s nothing to talk about.
