Given increasing budget constraints, it is vital that employers get the most bang for their buck in recruiting efforts and that they result in hiring employees that possess the necessary skills. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the United States military which faces cutbacks while still needing to recruit soldiers who possess the skills needed to operate the modern military. This paper develops a set of propositions aimed at guiding empirical research into how military recruiters can use currently administered personality tests to ensure that they are enlisting the recruits needed to perform high technology occupations now needed.
