All companies – both emerging and established strive for innovation. They secure cutting edge technology platforms and build out their annual business goals. They look to hire talent who can execute the strategy as proposed. This is where companies have to think a bit differently when hiring. They interview candidates and screen out those who do not appear to “conform”. These original thinkers are who prevent companies from going stale. These are the folks who are going to drive innovation, and those who we should be continuously seeking.
