I really enjoyed this post, as it’s another way to look at finding the right person for the job. I particularly like his comparison to marriage: “Would you marry someone based on a one hour interview in a singles bar?” Hopefully probably not. Yet we expect that we can determine a person’s values, work ethic, committment and abilities by doing much the same.
Now, is it always feasible to put someone to work on a test basis per Seth’s suggestion? Probably not, but it shows that people are thinking about changing the status quo of recruiting. I for one am all for it.
