How well does Interviewing work in Choosing the best Employee?

Employee Performance There are problems in using “predictors” of suitability for open positions within a company. Hunter and Hunter (1984) showed that interviewing is one of the worst predictors of future job performance.  Using reference checks (.26), education (.22) or biographical data (.37) did not improve the odds too favorably.

Competence drives confidence

When have you been most confident at work, in any job?
