Three people have applied for a director position in a leading logistics organization. These three people
consist of a 22-year-old Black female, a 39-year-old White male, and a 58-year-old Asian male. All three individuals have similar educational backgrounds; however, the oldest applicant has the most experience. The youngest has the most recent education. The White male has maintained a history of staying current in the field as well as ascending within the organization.
Who are you going to hire? Why? Why are you NOT going to hire the other two? Do you think you have enough information on which to base a decision?
As you respond to the question, discuss what you based your decision on (i.e., qualifications, characteristics, or other).
