Why hiring staff is like buying shoes

When buying new shoes, the first step is to work out what size you are. It doesn’t matter how good a shoe looks, or how many features it has, if it isn’t the right size it just won’t work. In the same way, when you’re hiring new staff they have to be the right fit for your position. It doesn’t matter if a job applicant looks good and interviews well, if they aren’t the right fit for your position it just isn’t going to work.

This sounds obvious, but why do 4 out of 5 people end up in the wrong job? Basically it is because recruiters have been measuring the wrong thing! Every day, jobs are filled by people who have the experience, the qualifications and some of the skills for the position. This old method of recruiting just doesn’t work.
