Stop Job Interviews!
I’m against Job Interviews, they have a spectacularly high failure rate.
I thin they should be eliminated from the hiring process for the following reasons:
– people are bullshit artists; they will say anything to get the job
– first impressions are hardly enough to judge character and potential
– most employers stick with a mediocre employee, because they can’t be bothered going through the hiring process again with no promise of finding someone better.-
– even calling references is not enough as the candidate is not going to give you the number of someone who thinks they suck.
I think job interviews should be replaced with an ‘Apprentice’ style test week (with no pay) where the candidates fight it out based on the tasks assigned to them.
I’m very curious to see what everyone else thinks….
