Passion, key characteristic of a good job candidate

Found | Read, one of the GigaNET blogs, is running an article titled Passion spotting, which echoes one of the main points in my recent Stop “fine-tuning” your resume post: in a job candidate, evidence of passion is much more important than any hyped keywords in a resume.

Passion will tell me most of what I need to know about a person’s dedication and drive. In developing a great startup team, these two elements are the most important. Talent and abilities can be developed. The former are what foil, or leverage, the latter.

Not exactly groundbreaking news, but always worth reminding yourself.
