In this series, we focus on Anas Abbar's journey and motivational ideas in the hope to help some who are looking for guidance in everyday life. Each episode focuses on a different angle.

Here are the questions we asked:

  • CVs are important but we most look beyond the "ink on paper". I'm curious to know - what do you look for when hiring people? I ideally look for a balance of all three.
  • Is it experience or skills as indicated in CVs?
  • Is it their passion or interests?
  • Is it their attitudes? On whether they are culturally fit to the organization?
