This is the final posting in a four-part series. The real challenge, and question that should be asked, is if we hire this person, what are we going to do to ensure they are properly developed? This can be challenging because the person already retains most/many/all/more experience and skills than the position requires. This challenge ultimately resides with the employee’s supervisor/manager/leader…and the question to them is: what are you going to do to ensure this employee is properly developed. I would assert, a good/great manager/supervisor/leader would create a solid plan to develop this person and successfully execute the plan. So perhaps it is not a matter of should we hire a person who is highly qualified, perhaps the company should be asking: Does our management/leadership possess the necessary skills to develop a highly skilled employee?
