2. You are an assistant director of marketing for a large company, with five years of experience in the job. Your boss, the Director of Regional Marketing, recently retired, and you applied for the position. While conforming to legal guidelines, the company emphasizes promotion from within, so you’ve felt you had a very good chance for the position. However, the company depends heavily on tests and personal interviews for promotion, more so than experience and recommendations. In this case, the company had all applicants take an intelligence test and a personality test. You’ve just now been informed that the VP for Global Marketing has promoted a relatively new assistant director of HR to the Director of Regional Marketing position. This person has some marketing experience but has only been with the company two years.
