The other day my brother asked me to help plaster the wall, so it can be painted later on. My brother has a lot of experience in such sort of home renovation tasks, i don’t.
Hence, this made me reflect on a point, especially important when recruiting.
How can you judge someone, who has an entirely different set of skills than you.
You will often unwillingly judge based on your view points and skill sets.
Can a CEO that has never worked in marketing, really judge if the new marketing manager is good? What about a simple HR employee, how can they really know which candidates are good? Is it really a matter of which companies you have on your CV ?

This can extend way beyond jobs and recruiting. It can be easily generalised. A person with a specific character type or with a specific skill set, can not judge another person with a different skillset or character type, based on the first’s skill set and character type.
