In this week's episode, Qualigence International CEO Steve Lowisz, a recruiting industry expert, discusses a candidate's years of experience and how that does not equal a skill. Lowisz tells a recent story about getting a call to help a friend recruit for a VP of Sales position and how the GM and the HR Business Partner declined the candidate: Why? What was wrong? Nothing really...it was a decision based on the fact that the candidate had eight years of experience and not 15 years of experience. So, what is the big deal with that, especially if the candidate meets all the other qualifications?
