Are Recruiters any different than Irish Economists?

In the video below David McWilliams talks about the Irish economists (and the average punters!). He talks how we humans make decisions completely irrationally. Both the masses and the professionals – Economists.

It just stuck me how applicable is this to the Recruitment Industry. Regardless of all the recruitment processes we have implemented the decision who gets a job or not is at the end down to a human.

Just remember to replace the Economist with the Recruiter while watching the video below and see how applicable it is!

Do you still believe in the rejection,…. oops sorry – selection process?

    met David at kilkenomics. Have to say he is very smart, entertaining and so knowledgeable. The punk economics series is just another example of how good his work is and how he adapts with the times.
