Talent Search 2000 - An Experiential Activity to Help Strengthen Skills in Employee Recruitment and Selection


  • Paul Lyons


The activity expressed here, Talent Search - 2000, is generative and heuristic as it helps learners to form important questions and hypotheses about the screening and selection of job applicants. [note: in this work, "learners" is used to represent students, trainees, etc.] The questions and hypotheses created by learners in this activity are important because they directly influence knowledge acquisition and skill development. Also, the intellectual work required in the activity provides some foundation for continuous improvement in practices related to job applicant screening and selection.
