Job matching program

Postby Scuba » Wed Aug 02, 2006 1:32 pm

How to Match A Job Applicant to An Appropriate Position

Put about 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window. Then send 2 or 3 candidates into the room and close the door. Leave them alone, and come back after 6 hours, and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks, put them in the Accounting Department.

If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in Engineering.

If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in Planning.

If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.

If they are sleeping, put them in Security.

If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in Information Technology.

If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in Sales.

If they have already left for the day, put them in Marketing.

If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning.

If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in Top Management.

Finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, suggest they apply to the government.

For some reason I just had a flash back to junior high.

Anyone remember the tests they would make you take to determine what carreer path you should follow? That bus driver thing never did play out for me....LOL I hope dey did away with dat stoopid testing...
If at first you don't succeed; skydiving isn't for you!

Heh.. yea, I had that too -- apparently I am destined to be a "military musician". Unfortunately these programs still quite active, perhaps even worse. If I used half the bull they fed us in my resume it'd hit the trash faster than you could say "Career and Personal Planning"

Mine said "Underwater Demolition Specialist". That was REALLY intriguing. Prolly should have gone for it! :D
This is of course only my opinion. But then again, what else matters? It is not necessarily the opinion or policy of the department I belong to or the community I live in.

The way you divided the jobs in your post was quite funny, but this is not the right way of selection. You should choose an employee according to their education and knowledge.*
