Hiring is not science but art so one needs constant practice to eventually be better at it. There's no foolproof way of hiring the best talent in the industry. No resume can tell a recruiter how sound he/she is when it comes to the particular skill that they are seeking. What we can do is follow a few guidelines and methodology in order to reduce the risk of hiring and investing in the wrong talent. We only become proficient in judging applicants with experience over time.
