With fresh candidates you look for; enthusiasm, considered intelligence and fundamentally whether or not they listen.

They will always need to learn a lot, but you look for the capability of that learning. Not what they think they already know.

The main issue with fresh recruits, especially graduates, is arrogance.

They've got their degree and think they know it all. Typically the higher the grade, the worse the arrogance.
