Hire With Your Head: A Rational Way to Make a Gut Decision

By Lou Adler

Adler argues that traditional job descriptions (which usually just specify required education and experience) are a poor way to recruit and identify high-caliber candidates.  Instead, he advocates using performance-based job descriptions, which clearly outline what the candidate will be expected to accomplish if hired. Use of catchy acronyms makes the book appear a little gimmicky, but his approach is a real eye-opener. Highly recommended.
