IT Hiring:  You

If you've read through all the preceding principles/entries, you have a better understanding of IT incompetence than anyone in government, business or media. Still, the important points to remember if you are doing the IT hiring:

You should always ask for, and check, the IT qualifications/credentials of those doing the actual IT work (not frontmen); see The Most Important IT Credential: An IT Education. If they won't tell you it is because they are IT incompetent — if they weren't, they wouldn't hesitate to shout these credentials at you.

You will have to pay more for IT competence, but it is well worth it. See Why Stop IT Incompetence? Data Breaches and IT Hiring: IT Competents Demand Greater Than Supply.

Don't hire foreigners. See No IT Education: Foreigners and IT Hiring: Foreigners.

I, Dr. Duane Thresher and Apscitu Inc., would be your absolute best choice for IT services and consulting. As discussed in Who Am I To Talk About IT Incompetence? Duane Thresher, PhD and as my Credentials show, I am exceedingly well qualified. Further, I do the actual IT work; I am not just the frontman for a bunch of cheaply-hired IT incompetents. Moreover, I am an American citizen, born and educated in the U.S., and I only work for U.S. clients.

Finally, read through the IT Incompetents Hall Of Shame (ITIHOS), which is introduced in the next entry. It makes a useful companion to LinkedIn, where many IT incompetents hang themselves.
