We once observed that if you’re going to hire, say, a head of comedy development, the simplest test would be to ask applicants for the list of their ten funniest films of all time. Seems Kurashiki Central Hospital in Japan was reading our blog. They’ve created a new test for surgical applicants. It’s not a book exam, it’s three hands-on puzzles applicants must assemble (using surgical tools) in 15 minutes. As the voiceover explains, surgeons don’t operate on books, they operate on people. How are you testing for ideal job applicant skills?
