I agree, Francesca. That’s what I will be looking for — a curious, inquiring mind. Someone who knows when and how to ask original, intriguing and engaging questions to propel a conversation forward and keep people begging for more. And of course resourceful, knowledgeable in many varied things, patient, methodical, and more than just helpful, but willing to go the extra mile. Pile on all th technical knowledge they need to know and continuously learn, I think they need to be smart and have an insatiable quest for learning new things. And did I mention energy? An extra supply kept close by is a necessity.
And having all that, a person who truly gets and can embrace the following quote: “In order to appear agreeable in society, one must agree to learn many things they already know.” While the true genius at this job must BE a know-it-all, you cannot let others know you are and do the job well. Ooooh, that’s a provacative statement, I know, but one can still be quite elegant and eloquent without being over the top. A humble, elegant, eloquent servant of exquisite value. That’s it. Now that’s not too much is it, lol?
