Great advice
Pay attention to what the company needs you to do -- not what the company wants you to have. That is a great point. You probably aren't a 100% match to every point mentioned in the job description. That shouldn't mean you're out.

I hope people on the hiring side think on that for a long moment, too. IT needs to stop looking for purple squirrels and start looking at the eager candidates sitting across the desk.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
