I think it's important to talk to candidates in most cases, to get a
sense of their basic intelligence and how well organized that brain is.
Chaotic, sloppy people are not what you need. If someone is deficient
in experience, or degrees, but has intelligence, drive and mental
organization, there's no reason not to consider that candidate over
someone with more certifications but less of those traits.
