Skill-based Hiring: Using Job Simulations to Attract and Identify Top Talent

If you were recruiting pilots, would you evaluate them in a flight simulator or the cockpit of an Airbus? High-consequence jobs like piloting airliners require advanced simulations. But what about desk jobs? These roles also face significant risks - legal, financial, relational, decision-making, and more. How can we use job simulations to attract and identify top talent? 
This talk explores: 
  • Types of job simulators: Email, business, behavioral. 
  • Theory: Why do simulations work? How? 
  • Scoring: Both soft and hard skill scoring in a simulation. 
  • Cost/benefit: Comparisons across simulation types.
