Agile Hiring ,seems to be latest trend, the fit get the best.
this will not be case for all Major MNCs only for startup or the middle level-growing firms like the JAVA technology firms best example.

Hi Anil,
"The fit get the best" has little to do with what I wrote about. That said, great companies have a distinct hiring advantage and crappy companies are at a disadvantage. Natural selection is a fundamental part of business so my writing does not dwell on it.

The techniques I present have been applied successfully in two MNCs. I believe what you are getting at is that some companies are rigid and have antiquated cultures. This definitely creates friction but it does not mean things cannot change for the better. You may not be able to fix everything, but it's a sad state of affairs if a company has no interest in improving. If I worked at a company like that...well, that wouldn't happen now would it? I wouldn't be there.
