Approaches to Selection and Hiring. Perspectives on Training the Disadvantaged--The Hard-to-Employ. Personnel Services Review Series 2.
Harrison, Don K.; Brown, Dorothy R.
Traditional employment screening procedures; the interview, the job application, the high school diploma and work try-outs, may screen out rather than screen in the hard-to-employ. Employment testing may reflect the trainee's anxiety, his cultural differences, the irrelevancy of test questions, and his inability to read rather than his potential capability as a worker. This monograph questions the traditional employment techniques for the hard core and suggests some alternatives. (DB)
