Google talent chief Kyle Ewing encourages hiring managers to think about the skills they want job candidates to display.




It's part of the company's shift from credentials, like college degrees, to specific competencies that are important for the role.

Google has spent a lot of time thinking about the best ways to hire top talent.
One key strategy the company has hit on is making sure it hires people for the right reasons.
For example, a manager might show a preference for a job candidate who graduated from the same college they did. Even if the candidate's experience on the Yale lacrosse team has no bearing on their ability to do the job, it may sway the manager's decision anyway. In fact, the manager may wind up choosing the fellow alum over another candidate who would be a more valuable asset to the organization.
