Why it's better to hire the least qualified person for the job
A recently released research paper by three European academics makes the intriguing argument that it may be better to hire a mediocre job candidate than to hire someone with sterling credentials.

The most qualified candidate, by contrast, may feel like he deserved the job, and decide to approach it with a more relaxed attitude.
