What Hiring Assessments and Dating Services Have in Common

If I hear one more person ask for advice on what types of assessment tools to use in order to screen candidates out I will scream! Why on earth would you want to screen candidates out? It's like joining an expensive dating service and hoping that you don't meet your perfect match. This simply does not make sense to me.

Wouldn't a better approach be screening people in? It can be done. As long as you know what you are looking for. You then can assess candidates for fit, which is really what hiring is all about.

Don't believe me? Just ask my client who is still feeling the aftershocks that have rocked his organization after he terminated an executive he hired a few years back. Make sure this isn't your story.
