- are you an outlierMar 8, 2012
- Outliers are what premium head hunting and recruiting is all about. They don't tend to think in terms of brain teasers I can tell you that. We tried those despite my objections and got the kinds of people who like to solve brain teasers. The best ones correlated well with a basic test we gave but that was deemed cruel and unusual so it was scrapped in favor of a mish mash of brain teaser and will the person fit in bs. Another best hire did not speak English well enough to give a brain teaser question to but we knew from the headhunter and some Russian guy from back home that he was a genius++ and started doing database work out of frustration with theoretical physics at some secret lab for Russian genius guys. Maybe he found another job on Linked in and save the headhunter fee for all I know. Probably not.Mar 8, 2012
- I am not sure I understand the reference to brainteasers.
I believe most LinkedIn profiles to be accurate and putting jokes on LinkedIn to be an outlier case.
I also believe that LinkedIn is a very effective platform for professional recruiters, be they internal staffers or external headhunters. In some cases, LinkedIn can in fact fully displace headhunters. In others, it is complementary. In any case, it leads to significant cost savings.Mar 8, 2012
