in reply to Certifications are dumb.

like mr_mischief said, you sound like the perfect employer =)

you realize that everybody has weaknesses. most employers don't realize that motivated people with weaknesses try to develop their strengths.

but i would like to add that some people have to learn to develop their own modules for CPAN. before a friend of mine had told me about the YAPC::Europe in london i hadn't known much about the perl community. the only thing was compl.lang.perl.*, at least. then i attended a YAPC myself and slowly realized how much fun it can be to develop modules and publish them. so some people need to be pushed there. of course it's difficult to know before.
