Purple Squirrel [pur-puh l skwur-uh l] adj.

A term used to describe a job candidate with precisely the right education,
experience, and qualifications that perfectly fits a job’s multifaceted requirements.

In theory, this prized “purple squirrel” could immediately handle all the expansive variety of
responsibilities of a job description with no training and would allow businesses to function with fewer workers.


“Thanks again for all of your hard work.
The two candidates I met with today
were both very impressive.”
– IT Manager of a Fortune 400
Healthcare Company
