With employment intentions remaining positive, finding suitably skilled labour has returned to the agenda of many organisations. However, a new research paper by Rookie Recruits has suggested a rethink is required for attracting rising stars.

    More great work from Rookie Recruits! Absolutely agree with Jason on all points except that 'hiring for attitude requires lengthy and laborious screening'. There are several online tests available (such as the Harrison Assessments Talent System) that can measure enthusiasm, motivation and work attitudes in under 30 minutes - giving employers a head start in hiring the right people, first time.

    I would be VERY wary of the advice contained in #4. Asking 'unusual' questions is normally a recipe for disaster for the untrained interviewer as they risk straying into questions that are not job-related and a more the territory of a psychologist or counseller.
