Finding the perfect candidate goes far beyond matching a resume to a job description. The people are the brand, and organizations have to look at more than just a candidate’s hard skills to determine if they’re the right fit.
Tom Gimbel believes in hiring for personality and culture fit. He believes that hard skills can be taught, but these two characteristics are harder to develop. He looks for candidates who are smart, nice, hard-working, and easy to manage. Because at the end of the day, he believes you have to genuinely like the people you work with.
