Hiring complementary talent

In their new book, Ed Burger and Mike Starbird relate the following incident from a symposium in honor of Albert Einstein.

One of the speakers told a story about being a young assistant to Einstein. He said that during the job interview with Einstein, he admitted that he didn’t know much about relativity, to which Einstein replied, “That’s OK. I already know about relativity.”
