    In today’s fast moving world job’s are many but the criteria of hiring has changed. Education is important, but the domain specific job seekers are very few. All the companies Do need to train the new Hire but still they look for domain specific Seekers for low budget of training (in terms of Time and money both). without denying the fact that a Pink Unicorn is possible to find in today’s world. The question is , Is the company willing to pay for the same. how long can the company afford to wait for the right candidate.
    My Answer is rather than waiting for the Pink Unicorn, Go for a candidate with almost the same experience at a lesser Monitory cost, but more on time to train the candidate in the domain. Company Keep the patience and you will get the right results on time with the training provided.

    Nobody is a born Star. All are trained in this world. Pink Unicorn is only one. There are many other seekers who could possibly become the Pink Unicorn.
