Hire someone based on certifications or qualifications.

I got a degree because It was the only way to get ahead when the company was promoting useless individuals based on paper qualifications. When I became a hiring manager I made sure that experienced journeymen made my team, not to the exclusion of promising college kids but the chances of landing a dud with paper qualifications and naught else are respectably high in my experience.
