The fact that an individual has attained impressive results in
the past, according to the existing circumstances and context, does not indeed necessarily
imply that this will be able to yield the same outstanding results in the
future. On the other hand, whether a person has been able to provide evidence
of his/her past achievements, this should entail that this has the experience and
qualities to potentially re-achieve those results, which should coincide with
the feats the employer is expected the selected candidate to perform.
Recruitment specialists and professionals should hence try and identify, and hence agree with the relevant managers, when some specific experience for any given post can be “sacrificed” or otherwise for future potential.
