The article presents views of the author on hiring good people. According to her, a job should be broken down into parts and each part should have a person matched to it. To determine whether someone has that capacity, there is a need to ask good interview questions. The author looks for a match between special job requirements and the person. The reality is that a good employer is rare and if an employer has a lot to offer, he can attract great people. If he does not, become an employer who has a lot to offer and hold out for great people.
