Experienced is not always the best candidate

Richardson Drops Out of Democratic Race – New York Times

Selecting someone for a office / job, can be done based on :

1. Experience and knowledge

2. Attitude and intelligence

It is often said ( in selection process)

“hire for the attitude and train for the skill”

Because while both are essential – especially for such big posts as president of USA, experience / knowledge can come from people around, but attitude and intelligence are not easy to be induced.

But then attitude and intelligence are much more fuzzier than experience and knowledge.

Resumes are formats for experience and knowledge, while interviews are tests of attitude and intelligence.

You can guess who I would support !! đŸ™‚
