Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    I have hired lots of people over the years and in my past life. I always tried to hire people that I thought could do a good job at least one level higher than the job we were filling. For example when hiring a lower level supervisor I tried to identify people that would be successful in the next higher Manager’s job. Worked out well over the years and a lot of people got promotions from the people I hired. Another thing on the wish list when hiring was someone with a different background from myself.

    But ya gotta get your resume through the hackneyed computer scanning matrix first – how can you hire for potential when these poor bast**ds can’t even get in the front door. Maybe it is time to start face to face conversations from the ground up again and get rid of ‘big brother’ computer filtering crap software!!
