Ever think that perhaps you might have lost a good one? Perhaps, they =
were one of those people, who *don't do tests well*, but are stellar at =
their job. I hate tests myself, but just love stress and pressure on =
the job. I like to stay "on my feet" and keep the mind grinding. I =
don't normally do tests badly, but I still hate them. That's why I am =
working and not back at school. :o) If their samples, resumes and =
references, were good enough to get you to thinking that you should =
employ this person, then their work and work habits, can't be all that =
bad. The other side of "the coin" is also that, you might get someone, =
who can do tests like they were Merlin, but have lousy work habits and =
don't "do deadlines".


ps. how's the dog? :o)
