Square peg, round hole

I've always followed a simple rule when hiring staff ; even though you have a posting for a position with certain responsibilities, you shape the final position around the candidate to maximize their utility.

So many companies waste good talent by forcing them to fit into a position which serves the company need, but misses the mark by ignoring the individual's true capabilities.

Remember - any company is only as good as its people and in tough times, its the raw talent in the staff that makes the difference.

Easy - I got a backhoe in my front yard and I'll drive that thing all the way down to Tampa and I'll show you a hole! ;-)
