We rarely give an opportunity to candidates spoiled by sh*tty companies and bad influence. We forget that some candidates weren’t lucky enough to meet an inspiring mentor or work in a supportive team. Broken toys are not welcome:
Hallelujah, Brother!

With developers, you never know who'll be absolutely perfect for the job -- and, like the guy says, looking at a CV won't really tell you a lot.

Which is why I absolutely refuse to allow HR departments to "vet" applicants -- If I can't be sure until I've spent some time (possibly months) with the candidates (and sometimes not even then), you can bet your @rse that HR has absolutely no bleeding clue at all.

Look for and find the strengths in the people you've got, and build on that, before looking for "superstars", who are usually more trouble than they're worth.

Good article.  Very good.  Force-feed it to anyone involved in hiring.
