Purple Squirrel

Purple squirrel is a term used by those hiring to describe a candidate with the precisely right education, set of experience, and qualifications that fit a job’s requirements— meaning a candidate is perfect for one particular job. The saying goes that “an over-specification of the requirements makes a perfect candidate as hard to find as a purple squirrel.”
