Why Employers Look For Candidates Who Have Failed
When I first heard this as a recruiter, I asked the hiring manager to please repeat themselves.
Later I learned that many savvy hiring managers often look to hire someone who has failed at a past job or project.
Ok, everybody out there that has hidden failures on their resume, raise your hand …
I was intrigued as I heard more and more hiring managers seek those who have failed at something, because it’s counter intuitive. And based on the number of people out there with their hands in the air, most candidates don’t realize just how valuable failure is.
