It is a yes and no question, I think it is important to point out, people with more experience or more education, don't necessary make them the best person for the job, although having more experience or education, can help to upgrade a person's ability and some job, do require a level of education or experience to be able to perform. But never the less, the person with the most experience and education, is not necessary the best person for the job.
Why? Let's say education, education is only about learning, it doesn't necessary mean, this person have the ability require to use those skills in practical manners. While sometime, people who have lesser education, might be very good at implementing the skills they learn, in practice. Thus, they would be better for the job, then the person whom despite having more education, is not as good at implementing the skills they learn in practice. My dad is an engineer and he talked about, how when he first started out, in his twenties, in a team of engineers, there was 2 guy, that got PhD, originally the boss thought, these 2 would be the strongest engineer of the team, but one of the guy who got a PhD, suck so much, he is only average (and without a PhD, he probably be the weakest link of the team)
Let's say experience, the most important things about experience, isn't how much experience a person got, but their ability, in converting those experience to assist them in practice. But once again, there is a problem. For example, there is an old say "practice make perfect", but some people only need to practice a skill for 3 times, to be good at it, others might need to practice 10 times and still very bad at it. To the same extend, the person with more experience is not always the best person for the job.
Unfortunently, except with government job, where we can test a person's ability via a standard civil service examination process (and some big company can do similar), most small firms, are not able to do it and must rely on how many experience and education a person have. If those experience and education, transfer into the require practical ability, to do the just, it is all good, but if it does not allow transfer into the require practical ability, you wasted your time, hiring an incompetent person and unfortunently, it do happen. While, sometime, a person whom despite having lesser education or experience, but might be better candidate, would be missed out.
