When reviewing a resume or writing a job description there is always thought given to years of experience. But the question is, is it really years of experience that is most important or the
quality of what was done that is the most important.
Let’s say you need a recruiter, but the emphasis is on sourcing. 90% of the job is going to be sourcing and you want 8 years of experience as a recruiter. Which then is better a person with 6
years as a recruiter with all 6 years being 90% sourcing, or a person with 10 years but only 50% being sourcing? Answer, given what you are looking for the person with 6 years and 90% sourcing is the better choice. Of course you need to talk with them to be sure, but on paper they are better. However if all you are focused on is years of experience and not on the quality of what they have
done you will overlook some really great people.
The point of this is not get to locked into years of experience, take into account the quality of what was done. Quality trumps years every time.
