Determining Hiring Criteria

As stated on page 73 of the course text, the last five Performance Evaluation Criteria shown on Table 5.1 (on page 74) are career and life skills, which “…are some of the performance qualities most often reviewed on employee evaluations.” These critical skills are not new but, rather, “some of the age-old personal skills…that are becoming more in demand as technology enhances learning, work, and life in the 21st century” (on page 71). Imagine you are a hiring manager at your work setting. As you envision the types of employee you would want to hire, consider the relative importance of the career and life skills as compared to the other criteria listed in Table 5.1. If your decision came down to two highly qualified candidates, one whose strengths lie primarily in the first six criteria, and the other whose strengths lie primarily in the last five criteria, who would you choose and why? What aspects of this decision would be most difficult?

Post a summary of the decision-making process you would use in determining the most highly qualified job candidate, given the scenario described above.
