So here's the story. Last week I met a candidate who really impressed me - not only with his day-to-day skill set but with the person he is. He's an Eagle Scout, does mission trips (5 of them so far), sings TO ENTERTAIN THE OLD FOLKS at retirement homes, has coached Special Olympics and more.I posted a blog about this young man here
and was quite surprised by the discussion that followed.
Most people advised me to look deeper. They were convinced that I'd find a dark side. To many it seemed something just HAD to be wrong with this guy. According to them, his involvement in character building projects, volunteering for his community and a 3.98 GPA are not enough info to allow me to pass judgment.
But, don't we all claim the "supernatural" ability to assess cultural fit? Isn't that why we earn the big money?
Just how in the world is this to be done if not by looking at how our candidates conduct themselves on a daily basis? Where, then, are we to look?
