What really does hiring for attitude mean?

It simply means that you hire someone who'll get the job done - in the right way, without cutting corners, and thinks about the customer before his/her own job security. Has more empathy and passion than the person next to them.

You oft hear the phrase, 'Skills/tools/domain/industry stuff can be thought", but of what use will it be if the learner isn't ready?

The readiness to learn, to fail, to risk, to succeed, to roll-up-the-sleeves and get the job done, to be the hardest worker in the room, are all traits that differentiates the candidate from the pool.

It's not a successful recruitment formula.

It just increases your chances of finding someone who'll have a whatever-it-takes skill to succeed.
