Recruitment criterion

Last week, we were discussin in class about recruitment criteria. What candidate would you hire. What is it that you look for in that candidate, given that we had listed a lot of qualities that differentiate between individuals who may be candidates for being part of a certain team, which inlcude:
Domain experience
Platform experience
Programming lnaguage experience
Education background
Communication abilities
Some jobs dont require high caliber graduates. But more importantly, you are recruited on the basis of your abilities. While the criteria may vary from person to person, the accepted formula is: attitude * ( experience + background )
So, I would think that attitude is a big key.

what is adaptability ?

Adaptability is the ability to adapt. If you dont have the domain experience, or the programming language experience, or platform experience, what are the chances that you would be able to rise to the occassion.

Dont you think Sir Communication ability is also a main thing while working in a team. I would have gone for Attitude and Communication and Experience. If the guy in a team is poor in communicating with other team members than there can be some problems. What do you say sir?

with regards

Well, I think communication abilities are important for building a team. But we are talking about recruitment criterion here. There is a difference between recruitment and selection.
