What the border control and your application process have in common.

I spend a lot of time in airports and I think there is a lot of similarity between recruiting and border control. The purpose is to keep out undesirables and follow a defined process. Many recruiters, like many airports, let process and regulation take preference over experience. The process applied is built with the regulation in mind, rather than applying simple logic that achieves the same end, but is just better for everybody. Would candidates choose you as a destination, or get turned off by the inefficiency of the border guards?
