My buddy Adam Wes, CEO of Adam Wes Academics (a large tutoring/test-prep firm in LA) uses some REALLY innovative techniques to screen mounds of applicants. He puts up an ad on Craigslist with a link to an online test that confirms how good the potential tutor is at math, science, GMAT, et cetera. It’s like 300 questions. Then, it asks them how many years of experience they have tutoring various subjects, what kind of degree(s) they hold, and their availability down to the hour during the week. All the data gets updated automatically into his Excel model, which he can sort/rank. He picks the top 1% of applicants that would be a best fit for his organization based upon this admittedly quantitative and impersonal selection process.I wish more organizations did this! Some HR consulting firm that could implement a system like this on behalf of companies to help their hiring efforts could make a lot of money deploying it.Hope your talent search goes well, Ben!
