    Details: Your firm is hiring a new marketing manager. You and one of the other senior managers have been interviewing candidates.

    A candidate just completed the interview process and has the following skills, background and characteristics:

    Hispanic Woman
    Masters Degree in Marketing
    Extensive and positive references
    Worked in a similar position with a competitor for the past 20 years

    You are very pleased with this candidate and feel she meets and exceeds all the requirements for the position. Your co-worker, the other manager, disagrees and rejects the candidate. When you ask "why" your co-worker only states that he does not think this person is a good fit and that the search should continue. You press the issue to find out why; however, your fellow manager will not divulge or discuss any of his rationale and simply repeats he does not think this candidate is a good fit.

    Your goal for this paper is to provide analysis and be persuasive.

    Based on your review of this situation answer each of the following questions in your paper:

    1-What type(s) of heuristic(s) may be present in formulating your co-workers opinion? Explain how you came to your conclusions (support your findings).

    2-Are there possible legal and ethical implications that can result from making a hiring decision based on your co-workers opinion?

    3-After your analysis for parts 1 & 2 (above) what do you think you should say to your co-worker and what would you need to tell him to persuade and convince him that this person is right for the job and should be hired?
