Synopsis: Book by Brooks Mitchell , Ph.D.

From Library Journal: Two new books on the costly and time-consuming enterprise of employee selection provide coverage typically found in journals devoted to management and human-resource development. Bet on Cowboys describes two time-honored selection procedures for front-line (nonmanagerial) personnel--the structured job interview and the criterion validity study. After a liberal dose of cowboy metaphors and Harvey McKay-like business anecdotes, Mitchell gets down to the task of describing and arguing in favor of these hiring procedures. He also expresses the strong sentiment that managers, rather than human-resource personnel, should do the hiring of front-line personnel. Smart Hiring provides more exhaustive coverage on topics related to personnel selection, including recruitment strategies, legal requirements, compensation, employment testing, drug and AIDS screening, and interviewing. While Mitchell repeatedly urges the utilization of scientifically validated procedures, Wendover provides the reader with a smorgasbord of hiring procedures, including over 500 openended interview questions. Both books provide practical and timely information to those involved in the selection process.
