Finding and assessing a candidate can involve a great deal of predictive ability. How do you train for that ability to predict if your candidate will be suitable?

Top Answer : That's a tough one. Some companies do behavioral assessments to try to understand the pattern of a candidate’s thinking. But that may not be proof or a solid reflection. We have seen this a lot in TV series and movies that, though he committed a crime, he knows how to get through the lie detector test. In the same way, a lot of candidates over a period of time know how to respond, how to answer on how to appear very current in an interview. I have known candidates who have been extremely successful when you hire them and they miserably failed after they join you. That happens for a lot of reasons. Could be the company, the culture, the people, the way they were operating. If you are bringing an outcome-focused person into a very process-driven environment it’s definitely going to fail. Because he’s not able to express himself. They’re not able to function because the system is always telling them what to do and how to do it. The question in the end is whether it can work for you? And I think that is exactly what you're trying to figure out.
