Typical HR expert dribble
Like most similar advice, this article describes what a great salesman you should be looking for in a new hire. I've been in electronics and computers my entire adult life (since the mid '70s). I've seen more than my fair share of applicants that sell themselves very well and can't tell the difference between a computer and an earth latrine. This article was written by an HR specialist who couldn't write code if his life depended on it. There is no substitute for knowing your stuff and knowing how to tell if an applicant knows his stuff and that is something that comes only by experience. Reading all the HR advice in the world won't help.
