Decision Making in Selection
While selection measures themselves may show good predictive validity and thus provide for excellent predictions of future job performance of candidates, problems can occur during the decision-making phase of the selection process. Difficulties first of all arise when individuals make final hiring decisions in a less than optimal way; for instance, under conditions of time pressure and an overload of information. Additional problems may emerge when conditions under which the hiring decisions take place are difficult; for instance, when relatively few or poorly qualified candidates apply for a large number of vacancies.
