Here’s a riddle. How do hiring managers ensure that what they see is what they get? Managers have complained to me so many times that they can’t hire quality federal employees. I’m not an HR expert or HR trained, but even I can determine some potential solutions.
Help me out here! To screen out those applicants who exaggerate on their applications, hiring managers can (1) test performance by hiring student career intern positions, (2) include a subject matter expert on the interview panel, and (3) include a paper exam in the interview process.
Am I crazy? Is there some specific reason why these processes are not routinely part of the hiring process?
