Selecting new employees

I could go on a bit about the terrible state of English football
I could go on a lot about the fantastic state of English rugby
I could go on a little bit about the demise of the Lib Dems
I could go on a great deal about the wonderful Delia Smith

But I shan't

Instead I'll tell you a tale about the latest technique for selecting people for jobs.

Put about 100 bricks in no particular order in a closed room with an open window. Then send 2 or 3 candidates in the room and close the door. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks -Put them in the accounts department.
If they are recounting them - Put them in auditing.
If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks - Put them in engineering.
If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order - Put them in planning.
If they are throwing the bricks at each other - Put them in construction.
If they are sleeping - Put them in reception
If they have broken the bricks into pieces - Put them in IT.
If they are sitting idle - Put them in human resources.
If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved - Put them in sales.
If they have already left for the day - Put them in marketing.
If they are staring out of the window - Put them on strategic planning.
And then last but not least.
If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved -
Congratulate them and put them in management!!

So what's the news?
