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.
