F*** You, I Quit — Hiring Is Broken

I totally agree that a lot of tech companies get interviewing wrong… I was reading Anthony Bordain’s kitchen confidential. He quotes a famous restauranteur code-named “bigfoot”…

“Bigfoot understood — as I came to understand — that character is far more important than skills or employment history. And he recognized character — good and bad — brilliantly. He understood, and taught me, that a guy who shows up every day on time, never calls in sick and does what he said he was going to do is less likely to f**k you in the end than a guy who has an incredible resume but is less than reliable about arrival time. Skills can be taught. Character you either have or don’t have. Bigfoot understood that there are two types of people in the world: those who do what they say they’re going to do — and everyone else.”
