Words of the Week – airport test
Recruiters consider the airport test the ultimate question in hiring decisions. It goes like this: “If you were traveling, and your flight got delayed, would you mind being stuck in an airport with this person for 5 hours?”
If the answer is, “Not at all, we would have a lot to talk about,” then hiring appears to be a good decision. If the answer is, “Yes, He is really smart, but I would be miserable if I was stuck in an airport with him,” then it’s probably not the best job fit for either of you.
