Failure to look
beyond industry borders

Failure to look beyond industry borders. If you're in a fast-growing industry, many of the very best people have either started businesses themselves or gotten tied up with long-term contracts. Further, if your industry tends to recruit from within, the same group of non-superstars may be cycled company-to-company.

Farsighted employers will look beyond the borders of their industry to locate candidates with complementary experience in other industries. Different perspectives bring fresh solutions. And by hiring people whose background is consistent with your future plans, you'll have a better shot at becoming an industry pacesetter.
