Although author Robert W. Wendover does not break any new ground, his book is relevant for anyone involved in hiring. While he tailors his material to those who do not have a lot of experience in this area, even veteran managers will find commonsense suggestions and valuable nuggets of information. Nothing can guarantee foolproof hiring practices, but by pointing out common pitfalls and outright blunders this book enables you to streamline the process. The appendix of sample interview questions is particularly helpful for managers who want to extract more vital information from face-to-face interactions with job candidates. getAbstract recommends this book as a hiring primer for new managers and a useful reference for experienced ones.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to choose the right person for the job;
- What legal issues to consider during hiring; and
- How to avoid hiring errors.
