Hiring someone that has done the same job in the past is not always the best hire.
You may be hiring someone who lacks passion. Although they know how to do it, could they be bothered? You’ll most likely be paying a premium for their experience, best that you ensure that they have a fire in their belly to use it.
It could be you are just a ‘filler job’ until something better comes along.
Given the small population in Australia, workers are used to being more adaptable. If you end up waiting for the candidate that has done the same thing in a competitors business, you may be waiting for a long time. You’ll also need to have a compelling sales pitch to attract them.
Challenges give good workers inspiration to work.
Continual learning inspires curious people.
Hiring someone from an aligned industry gives this. They may have used the same or similar skills, but applying them into a different market.
