From the Back Cover:

Popular with students, academics and professionals alike, this is the fourth edition of Personnel Selection. A thoughtful, entertaining and comprehensive text, this edition has been thoroughly revised to focus on the key issues and the latest research in this rapidly developing field.

Features of the fourth edition include:

  • The use of the internet in job application, recruitment and assessment.
  • How job analysis is changing to meet changing concepts of the nature of work, leading to an increasing emphasis on broader abilities and dispositions.
  • The big five model in personality: new measures, new reviews of selection research, links to job analysis, the use of broad factors vs. more specific facets.
  • The problem of faking in personality questionnaires: its extent and its impact on selection decisions.
  • The effectiveness of teams (as opposed to individuals) in terms of personality and ability.
  • Adverse impact in selection, especially education, interview, biodata, assessment centres, personality tests, honesty tests.

This book is essential reading for students and professionals in occupational psychology and HR who are interested in relating research to the real world practice of personnel selection.
