Hot Hiring Hint from Mel Kleiman : The Past Is the Future

Remember that how applicants have used their capacities, attitude, personalities and skills in the past is the single most important indicator of how they will use these in the future.

A candidate who is brilliant, charming or highly talented may be coasting along and not expending much effort on the job, while another candidate less blessed is willing to work harder and commit to the job much more completely.

Appearances can be deceiving, so look beyond them and don't allow yourself to be dazzled.
