    Thank for your comment and I agree. I think focus should be shifted more toward what a candidate can bring to the table, as in what skill set makes them a good fit for the job or the job a good fit for them.

    Thank you, I know this will help others look at this topic in a different light, if need be. This aspect of life-along with many others, definitely HAS changed through the generations.
