Skills, experience and attitude usually top the list of attributes sought in a job candidate. But for Rob Daley, CEO of 4moms, a Pittsburgh-based baby products maker, humility comes high on that list, too.

“If I’m supposed to collaborate with people, and I think I’ve got all the answers, it breaks down really fast,” he tells Inc. magazine.

At 4moms, each job candidate goes before a “culture committee,” where they’re scrutinized for a big ego.

If you’re full of yourself, you likely won’t land a job at 4moms.

One-third of otherwise-qualified job applicants are rejected because they lack passion or humility, Daley says.
