[muse] Smart, Motivated, Nice

Hiring is tough. It's like commiting to marriage after just a couple of speed dates. After all, many of us spend more of our waking hours during the week at work, rather than at home.

I learned the greatest hiring rule from Al: "Smart, Motivated, and Nice".

But, how one actually figures out if a potential candidate is smart, motivated, and nice, in just a couple of short interviews, continues to be one of the most interesting and difficult challenges to me.
