How to recruit the right person for the job

Put about 100 bricks in no 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 1 hour and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks: Put them in the accounts department.

If they are already 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 reception
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 in strategic planning.

And then last but not least....

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved: Congratulate them and put them in top management.
