Faking Your Credentials, and Disparate Impact

James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal has a great article referencing the Marilee Jones flap at MIT that I covered in my post titled How Not to Get a Job: Fake Your Credentials. I don’t usually look to Taranto as an expert in HR issues like disparate impact, but he does present an interesting view while referencing Griggs v. Duke Power Co.

Check it out on the Taste page: “Disparate but Not Serious – College is an expensive way of taking an IQ test.”

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
