That would make the applicant the lucky one as they would not have to work for a unlucky employer.

Couldn't the employer just hire the random applicant? They're the luckiest applicant.

I would hire you based on your optimistic attitude alone. Unless you are a tranny, I would not hire those whackadoos no matter how lucky they are.

This here is why the concept of luck is pretty useless.

Throwaway..

The concept is useful if it is a quality people can have that isn't simply a result of chaos blindly favoring them. If such an asset exists it is certainly a quality one would desire in an employee, and in everyone we liked or was an asset to us

Luck has the power to supersede all other abilities. It is the final boss that always had to be fought and defeated.

OP is an old HR "trick" to make ones job easier, using the excuse of weeding out the unlucky. If you own a small to medium business and have a pile to wade through, its not enough. Bin the earliest 25% and the latest 25% applications because stats.

Even if you have 10 applications try the concept, the applicant you hire will be in the middle 50% most of the time even if you randomize or are blind to the chronology of them
