I recently read a news article (in Norwegian) that "the ability to cooperate" was essentially the only requirement for applicants, which was just as relevant 50 years ago as it is today, while energetic and representable was now almost absent compared to then.
Given sites like Onstartups.com, twitter.com, linkedin.com, etc. I cannot but imagine that the multidimensional globalization (exchanging ideas, network, Q&A, etc.) they lead to, have changed the characteristics of the best employees. My assumption is that these sites makes employees more efficient and effective, but also require different skills in order for employees to succeed in generating value from them.
My question Have the online tools like the ones above changed your requirements when you consider a candidate?
