HR Strategy. Hiring Specialties or Growing Them?

In CWorld.    Self serving yes, but an alternate strategy for lack of specific IT skills.  Instead of hiring college trained people, probably younger people.  Hire older skilled people and train them intensely in the specialty. Cybersecurity is a good technical example, but others work as well.  Depends upon the person I think, a matter of trainable personality.  Yet managers in IT are always most proud of people they have 'made' into a exceptionally valued employee.   Older experienced folks are more typically seen as 'found'.
