A collection of degrees and a host of credentials is all well and good, but if you don't have the right attitude at work you'll likely be shown the door.
Mark Murphy is the author of "Hiring for Attitude: A Revolutionary Approach to Recruiting & Selecting People with Both Tremendous Skill & Superb Attitude." He's also this week's guest on Salary Talk, and tells Aaron and Wendy the hard truth about the way companies hire employees today -- most of the standard approaches to hiring are wrong.
Past employment at Fortune 500 companies and several advanced degrees are great. But Murphy said attention must be paid to how the candidate fits in with coworkers, bosses and the cultural fit of the company. Don't get enamored with resumes and avoid the stock answers that come from the "tell me about yourself" and "what is your greatest strength and weakness?" questions.
