Ability is your first concern

I wonder if I can say:

I think ability is your first concern.

When my cousin (who’s going to find a job) is discussing some important factors when looking for a job, and she said “experience, social connection, diploma”, and I said the above.

(Of course, viewpoint varies, but I think “ability” is the most important”).

I wonder if it’s fine here. I think it’s fine even though concern relates to health sometimes.

    I would change it slightly: I think ability should be your first concern.
    HI, besides the meaning "you should focus more on ability", I am wondering if "ability should be your first concern" a bit indicate that , your ability is what you should work on most; compared to other factors(expreience, social connection, etc), you are weaker at your ability.
