    The cost of poor hires is very high. The return on investment in using the techniques describe in the post is high.
    I use a practical test in interviews for IT developer roles. It is a simulation of a real problem that requires the candidate to think on their feet and to use a wider range of skills than simply cutting code. The code produced is not really the point of it. Some information is given up front. There is more information that can help if the person asks for it. If they don't ask they don't get. They are given clear instructions that set out very specific requirements for the exercise. It is designed to allow the candidate the opportunity to demonstrate and showcase their having the wider set of skills needed in the modern developer role. This approach does make a difference. It is not perfect, but it does reduce the risk of making a poor hiring decision. The smartest people with the best qualifications and skills who get through the recruitment process can still be toxic to a real team. Part of what recruitment is about is keeping the toxins out. Decontamination is very costly.

    I can see this method will work for a lot of companies. However so many recruiters play "We're too busy" game to actually try this out.

    It may well be that if an organisation is looking for that something extra they need to provide the staff and the time to the search process to enable them to actually find them.

    This gives me hope @Lynda Spiegel. When I was hired as a Respiratory Technician- I had zero experience in Respiratory. I was a Nurses Aide for 2 years at the same hospital before applying for the job. The job was called "OJT Respiratory Technician." OJT= On the job trainee. We had 6 months worth of training, College level testing and hands on testing before we were allowed to go out on our own and do our jobs. There were many jobs like this available back in the early 80's. I'm fairly certain I receieved this job because my boss was looking for the qualities you described above. I know he was also looking for people who were able to function under a lot of stress and were fairly quick learners. I was fortunate because today, most people aren't looking at a person holistically and many smart, emotionally capable people get passed by. I forgot to mention, I got to know many people in my 2 years on the job including, the Respiratory Therapists, this also helped me to attain the job because of my reputation. :) Thanks for sharing this! Sharing again.

    With 20 years experience in the logistics and supply chain area, I have to agree with you Jessica. I have seen highly educated staff come and go (and complaining they haven't climbed the ladder fast enough). Logistics and supply chain is not an area for everyone. I believe it takes people who have a great balance of analytical skills and creativity (how many problems have you solved by thinking outside the box). When looking for people to work in this area I have found more education is not an advantage.
