Long Term Problems?

After watching a video animation of a short part of a Dan Ariely talk on romantic relationships and investment in them, I started thinking about the way we approach hiring. Consider how similar hiring decisions are to romantic decisions. We interview a person based on an online profile or short resume, the candidate gets a short look at the company through a web page and an interview, and at that point both decide whether to start a relationship with them that requires us to make an investment.




I want to get stories out there that I think will help others pursue a better world by understanding how we learn, work, and grow. Everything from learning and eduction, to employee engagement, to project management lives here.
