When Innovation Trumps Experience

Many job postings today require a good bit of experience. 8 years here. 10 years there. And rightly so, they want hires who know what they are doing.

What you need to make sure however, is that experience doesn’t replace hard work and innovation. What happens when things change so fast your experience isn’t relevant anymore?

That’s the risk. Hire experienced people. But they also have to be hungry to stay on the edge – especially in any digital or tech industry. Otherwise they’ll be 10 years experienced in something that doesn’t matter anymore.
