Job Seekers, Here’s what I call a “Unicorn employee”:

1. Hands on technical skills

  • Has sufficient technical background and exposure to the job that needs to be done.
  • Ability to demonstrate that knowledge

2. Is a Natural leader

  • Mostly ends up leading people
  • Ability to rally people behind a cause, not through authority, but by motivating them

3. Can communicate

  • Ability to express themselves clearly to engineers and senior management (two very different set of skills)

I know, as engineers we dislike too much talking, or leading people.

From employers perspective: at certain level you need people with these skills, and are extremely rare to find

Unlike unicorns, these people do exist. so:

Become them, search for them, hire them and look after them , they are the drivers of your company.
