I’ve counseled executives for years to look for energy, enthusiasm, and a sense of humor in job candidates. These qualities can’t be taught or coached, they’re intrinsic. You can teach almost any content to people, but not these behaviors. So it’s pointless and ridiculous to hire people of low energy, low enthusiasm, and with no humor. (Humor is a sign of intelligence and perspective.)
I don’t really care about your experience elsewhere, I care about your future here.
