Re: Hidden gems
"I think IT loses too many "imperfect" candidates during a recruitment screen by non IT-people. Who better than your peers to gauge your passion for learning?"
@Laurianne: I totally agree with you on this. However, the last time I talked about this with the HR head in my company, he argued that IT people have a very myopic view about assessing people. They'd only focus on the technical part and not on the overall personality. Plus, he argued, that the IT people might not be aware of the strategy of the company and won't be able to find a sync between the people and the company strategy.
