PRINCIPLES OF HIRING ACCURACY

NO TWO JOBS ARE THE SAME
Every job is different. To hire accurately, a hiring process has to be customized to measure what drives success for each specific job/company/culture.

NO TWO JOBS ARE THE SAME.

Every job is different.

And I’m not just talking about jobs that are obviously different - like construction vs. accounting.

Jobs in the same field are different too.

Take 2 call center jobs for example:

-In Job #1, reps do collections. They track down people that owe their company money.

-In Job #2, reps provide basic inbound customer service.

What drives success in these two jobs is not the same.

And the same is true for most jobs.

If no two jobs are the same, no two screening processes should be the same either.

If you want to be accurate, your hiring process has to capture the nuances of what drives success in each specific job/company/culture.

Of course - because every job is different (#3) and every person is different (#2), none of us are a fit for every job.
