Good Excerpt from the book Taking your soul to work:

From Paul Stevens: ” I discovered that most jobs are open only to candidates with years of relevant experience. That approach is wrong. Dee Hock, President of Visa international argues that we should “hire and promote first on the basis of integrity, second, motivation; third, capacity, fourth, understanding; fifth knowledge; and last and the least experience.” He says that “without integrity, motivation is dangerous; without motivation, capacity is impotent; without capacity, understanding is limited; without understanding, knowledge is meaningless; without knowledge, experience is blind. Experience is easy to provide and quickly put to use by people with the other qualities.”
