A long-time employee of ours shared with us that he recently heard an expert on recruiting talk about how job seekers should prepare for 2022. This expert had 15 years of experience. Of course, he was not perfect, but nonetheless, what seemed like a revelation to that recruiter is old news to us and many others. We found this to be true particularly when it comes to selecting candidates.

For as long as we can remember, what’s on the resume has never really interested us. Of course, it’s useful for the basics, such as confirming whether a candidate has any experience in programming.

Maybe because Raph, one of our co-founders, is a self-taught systems administrator, we always believed in passionate candidates. Particularly when someone was passionate about computers at a very young age, like Raph.

Passion is the only driving force that can make someone better than any person with higher education. We can actually confirm that passion brings desire which creates the path to impossible achievements. We see this often with people who make an excellent income from something no one ever thought could be monetized.

So, if you haven’t caught on by now, we’re looking for passionate people. In support of that trait, we also look for people that are articulate, good human beings, resourceful, and autonomous.

To come back to the recruiter just now having that epiphany, we think that maybe he’s been looking at resumes for big corporations for too long.
