DAVE: Wouldn't it be just a question of company training,though?
TUTOR: Not always.Particularly in a team situation,and I think it's important to think in terms of that type of working environment.People have to have faith in each other's ability to carry out the task their boss has set them.They have to trust that everyone will do their part of the job,and you can't necessarily train people for this.
DAVE: But it's like trying to find out what someone's personality is like in a job interview...I mean you just can't do that.Even if you try,you won't find out what they're really like until they actuallly start work.
TUTOR: Well,in most interviews you usually ask candidates questions about their hobbies and what they like doing in their like doing their spare time...that sort of thing...so employers are already involved in the practice of...well,doing part of the task.
DAVE: But it doesn't tell you anything.It doesn't tell you if they're easy-going or hate smokers or whatever.
TUTOR: Well,arguably it does give you a bit of information about an applicant's character.
