Checklists for Describing Job Applicants.
Hakel, Milton D.; And Others
Historically, interviewers have been unable to reach high agreement on applicant potential even when they interview the same applicant. However, it has been recently demonstrated that interviewers can do a good job of gathering relevant data and predicting applicant success. This document is a report on research conducted to learn what factors affect accuracy of predictions based on interview data and how the accuracy may be increased. Following a description of procedures, seven chapters contain data and checklists developed for use in subsequent phases of the research studies. These checklists have been developed for jobs such as: (1) management trainee, (2) general management, (3) engineering, (4) secretarial, (5) clerk typist, and (6) general selling. Each list contains the number of respondents, mean, and standard deviation for favorability, frequency, and importance. (GEB)
