Dig Deeper Interviews

We all know from experience how difficult it is to match people to jobs—or to be matched successfully to a job, for that matter. That’s why I enjoy reading Lou Adler’s advice and why I’ve just added his blog to my blogroll.

Here's one of my favourite articles, Random Chance and How Managers Make Faulty Hiring Decisions. From what I have seen interviewers usually fail to follow up on the questions they ask of job candidates. They need to feel the material and give it a stretch. Adler tells you how.

And incidentally, if you found my previous blog item somewhat perplexing I've added a sentence or two near the end. I hope they help.
