So, I used to watch reality tv. (Don’t anymore, in fact, I don’t even own a television anymore.) I watched several seasons of the Apprentice and was equally horrified and fascinated. But, while a competition makes for great television, it’s not the right way to hire.
A reader asked me a question about a job her college-aged daughter interviewed for. You see, they hire two people and make them compete and then one gets fired after 90 days and the other “wins” the position.
Yeah, not really interested in that. I’ll tell you why it’s a bad idea: Donald Trump May Be Running For President, But You Still Can’t Hire Apprentice Style.
