I agree with Nora that recruitment tests prove very little, except that a
person tests well. But I disagree when she says "If there was [a reliable
predictor of success on the job], all companies would be using it!". There
is an almost foolproof method of predicting success on the job: monitoring
actual performance. If employers were to offer prospective
employees a short contract before hiring them, they would have a reliable
predictor of success on the job offered.
