Mega Millions! Low Odds.

Crawford Thomas Recruiting Blog

Tonight’s Mega Millions Lottery has skyrocketed to a whopping $970 million. Of course, you already know they’re not going to bring you a check for $970,000,000, rather, you’ll have that paid out to you over time.

The other option, the best option, is to take the lump sum. Unfortunately you’ll only get about $550 million and then $300 million after taxes. Back to ramen noodles and RC Cola on that budget.

All joking aside, $970mil is the second highest payout of all time.

When researching the odds of winning the lottery, I stumbled upon some interesting recruiting odds as well. Ready for this? The national average for hiring accuracy is 50%. That means 1 out of 2 hires will turn out to be a dud.

Research shows that if you ask a hiring manager, 12 months after a hire, “are you happy that you hired that person?” their answer will be NO half of the time. That is ridiculous.

I started thinking about the other areas within a company that would fail miserably with a 50% success rate. Which is damn near everything.

Here’s the sad part, most hiring managers don’t really know what the perfect candidate even looks like. It’s really a flip of a coin in some cases.

Here at Crawford Thomas Recruiting, we don’t want you to be a part of that statistic.
