The Week contest: Snowflake test
Last week's question: The CEO of a Connecticut marketing company has developed a "snowflake test" — in which he asks job applicants when they last cried and whether they're afraid of guns — to screen out Millennials who have "an entitled attitude." If he were to write a management book based on his hiring philosophy, what would it be called?
