What about the concept of medium skills. I feel like we may have missed the boat on this one. Medium skills is something I just made up, which is basically that little section of the job req that means minimum. The minimum skill level. I know that sounds like something that will make your hiring managers howl but hear me out. The basic threshhold at which someone can do the job should be enough, especially if you like the attitude of said person. Take me for example, I have held executive level marketing positions in multiple companies in four major industries, most recently and for the longest…this one, HR and Recruiting. In all those years, I have never gotten my MBA, become certified in any damn thing, or used a program in the same way from one company to another. Hold on, I know I am making myself sound really bad right now….
