One part of the 'picture' of a potential employee are the skills they've developed through experiences, work related or otherwise.

However the world is changing faster than ever before – employers grapple with the digital transformation, skills shortage, and competitive economic conditions. Job responsibilities change rapidly and organizations need to hire creative leaders to innovate and implement new ideas.
To remain competitive, you cannot simply hire someone who can meet the requirements of a job as they are written today. They clearly must have the skills and drive to grow, learn and adapt, as the organization moves into the future.
In my opinion, the logical approach is not to use out dated techniques but:
1) to measure factors that impact a person's ability and willingness to learn and grow
2) to understand deeply their passion for the role and alignment with the broader purpose of your organization.
When you find extremely skilled employees, you’d better be sure that they’re also passionate and hardworking!
