I value attention to detail in a worker higher than I value core knowledge and here’s why…

I can teach core knowledge, it might take time, but it can be taught.

But if you lack attention to detail, if you have a propensity to cut corners when it suits you, I cannot teach you not to do that, I can only hope that one day you will start taking pride in your work. But that isn’t usually a risk I am willing to take.

You don’t have to get every detail right every time – this website is testament to that fact, it is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors and other minor mistakes.

But I want to see enough care in the details that I won’t have to worry about how big of a corner you cut.

It is attention to detail that will get you the job, every time. People who measure against anything else are measuring the wrong performance indicators.
