Organizations should hire people because they believe that they are capable and motivated to do the job. If a hiring manager is qualifying them based on skills alone, she’s focusing on the wrong thing. Skills and knowledge only matter in the context of how they can be put to use. You can look at past accomplishments for evidence.
Contrary to popular wisdom and long-lasting cliches, knowledge is not power, it’s potential power.
Skills and knowledge you have aren’t important. It’s what you do with what you have that matters.
