How to recruit the right person for the job?

I have a lot of things to bitch about, but then again, they’re very unpleasant, so I’ll just spare your innocents eyes and save it for later and share a joke that my good friend Pauline sent to me some times ago.


Put about 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an Open window.

Then send 2 or 3 candidates in
The room and close the door.

Leave them alone and come back
After 6 hours and then analyze
The situation.

If they are counting the Bricks.
Put them in the accounts Department .

If they are recounting them..
Put them in auditing ..
If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks.
Put them in engineering .

If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order.
Put them in planning .

If they are throwing the bricks at each other.
Put them in operations .

If they are sleeping.
Put them in security .

If they have broken the bricks into pieces..
Put them in information Technology .

If they are sitting idle.
Put them in human resources .

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved.
Put them in sales.

If they have already left for the day.
Put them in marketing .

If they are staring out of the Window.
Put them on strategic Planning.

And last but not least…

If they have been talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved…

Congratulate them

and put them in
