read the article from the World business newspaper FINANCIAL TIMES. This
article about: “How to select the best candidates—and avoid the worst?” I think

organization paying for years to come.
companies will have escaped all of the following failures: people who panic at
the 1st sign of stress, people who seem incapable of learning, unstable people.

Intelligence levels decline modestly, but change little over their working
life. The same is true of abilities, such as learning languages and handling
people like to think that personality can change, particularly the more
negative features. But date affected over 50 years gives a clear message: still
stable after all these years. Personal crises can affect the way we cope with
things: we might take up or drop drink, drugs. Skills can be improved, and new
ones introduced, but at rather different rates. People can be groomed for a
job. Of course, people can be sent on training courses, diplomas, but better to

world view and ideology. They get a lot of information during their life, they
reed books, meet new people, go around different society. In these
circumstances people can’t stay the same during their whole life.
