An effective candidate selection process should screen out poor fit candidates early in the process and identify candidates that will thrive and be successful in your work environment prior to scheduling an interview.  This alleviates a huge administrative burden for HR departments and ensures that your organization is spending time with candidates that are a good fit for your job openings.
