Recruiting Pearls

How to Use Personality Tests Effectively
Personality tests can help you find employees with specific traits well-suited for your company’s culture, however, there are several points to keep in mind to use them effectively.

Find the Best Employees
High unemployment has saturated the job market with applicants so it's harder than ever for employers to weed out top candidates. Before you can locate the best employee for an open position, you've got to identify what exactly it is that would make someone a top contender, and then craft a job description that will attract people like that, says Ilya Pozin.

Why it’s Smarter to Hire Dumber
Rather than learn from errors, smart people doom themselves to repeat them, says Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto in Canada. “When something goes wrong, rather than reflect on what they might have done to contribute to the error, they look entirely outside themselves for the causes and blame outside forces — irrational clients, impossible time pressure, lack of adequate resources, shifts beyond their control.”
