Abstract [en]

This is a study about preferences with regard to subjective andobjective personnel selection methods, and whether these preferencesare predicted by certain personality styles. Also it studies differencesbetween hiring professionals and human resource students. 40students and 75 hiring professionals participated in an online survey.The survey measured participants’ cognitive style (intuitive andrational) and self-monitoring style as well as preferences for anumber of hiring methods. The results indicate that the students preferobjective methods to a higher degree than hiring professionals.However, there is no difference between them as to preference forsubjective methods. These preferences could be explained to somedegree by personality styles (intuitive, rational and self-monitoring),but most of it remains unexplained. Hence implications for futurestudies are presented.
