Bob,

 

I know that through my career, the single most important traits that I look for in a new developer candidate is curiosity and problem solving skills.  

Many kids come out of a program or school and they simply have no concept of how to approach a situation where they are being asked to solve a problem.  They have had "problems" set up for them throughout school and never picked learned that how you define the problem is 80% of the solution.

Curious coders (who are not too distracted) will be interested in expanding and growing their skills, and make themselves an asset to the company and ensure a solid career in the future.
