My new book “Hiring 3.0 New Rules For The New Economy” is now available. In this book you learn how to adjust your recruiting and hiring processes to best take advantage of the new economic realities. New competition and a glut of applicants are just two of the challenges being encountered. You learn how to integrate all of the Selecting Winners tools and techniques to form a successful staffing process.
I spent a considerable amount of time making this book as readable as possible. Rather than present a lot of theory, the book gets right to the point with usable strategies, techniques and tools. It is a quick read with each concept presented in short manageable sections. However, I did not leave out any of the important information.
Please take a minute and check it out at: http://www.Hirng3.0.com You can read excerpts from the book and see the table of contents.
Thanks for taking the time to check it out!
Not all hiring advice is created equally.
I do my best to monitor my marketplace. I get dozens of Google Alerts daily on various hiring terms. This is just one of the tools I use to stay on top of my subject and marketplace.
Today I received an alert about an article on how to select winning employees. The article boils down to 2 pieces of advice.
1. Ignore experience
2. Interview for personality
The author contended that experience didn’t matter and that personality was the driving force behind success. He said to identify 8 personality traits, ask questions to see if the person had them. And if they did not have at least 5 of the 8, eliminate the candidate.

In the United States, the debate is raging about how to jump-start the economy. There are suggestions about taxes and tax cuts coming from opposing sides. I just want to throw in my opinion.
People working is the primary fuel for a good economy. And people work for companies. Any proposal that hurts companies and depresses hiring is bad for the economy. Businesses are not the bad guys but instead we are the engine that provides jobs and fuels the economy. If someone can please get this message to the knuckleheads making the decisions we will all be better off.
Your comments are welcome!
I downloaded a list of the top 100 questions you should ask a sales candidate in an interview today. Before I looked at the list I knew it couldn’t be correct.
Because there are no 10-20-50-100 magical questions that work in every interview. For a full look at a post where I explain the situation, please click over to my blog at Selecting Winners at http://www.selectingwinners.com/blog
