In the scenario where I would have to find someone to fill a position, I would find myself gauging each candidate for the qualities which suit the company’s needs. The job listing would state that the person who applies must be articulate, sophisticated, and knowledgeable in the fiber optic field. The position also requires the candidate to spend leisure time with perspective clients after 5:00 P.M. This particular aspect of the job might deter applicants, but would not affect my judgment towards a final decision. Since the sales are at an all-time low for the Fortune 500 Company, to me that means that a piece of this company’s fate is in my hands because the person I hire could possibly save it.
After reading all of the profiles from some very qualified personnel, I believe that Jyoti of Wireless Retail Store would be best qualified for the position.

This tells me that Jyoti is not only an expert in her field, but she is also a team player looking to improve the qualities of those around her for the benefit of the company. As a person this quality also leads me to believe that she probably also has good morals, but that is only an opinionated judgment.

These two qualities seem to be the most important ones, as the U.S. President represents our nation and serves as an exemplary model for all Americans. In addition to leadership and honesty there are other ...
According to chapter 22 of the text, women are unfortunately still being confronted by a glass ceiling which keeps them from being promoted or earning more than a male statistically. Not that I would be looking to hire a female over a male, but that fact that she is a female makes it all the more better. At her previous job she must have set a good enough example in order for her superiors to have asked her to train other employees. With the same concept, I would expect that she would continue to lead by those same principles and be the example which other females portray on their way to the top.
