The best fit for a tech position is a candidate who’s done the same job before, right? Maybe not, says CEO, award-winning author and social innovator Charles Easton. In this episode of Technologist Talk, Charles explains how employers seeking to fill jobs working with technology must learn to trust qualification beyond specific experience.
“A confidence gap is what the potential employee faces. The person who is in training or doesn’t know if they can be in this field. And on the other side it’s a trust gap. An employer doesn’t know whether they can trust this person who they might hire, because they’re so green and they don’t necessarily have all the requirements they were looking for. In their mind, it’s about managing their risk.”Charles Eaton, CEO, Creating IT FuturesListen now.
