What do you think about the requirement that government employees be tested before hired? According to the exact wording of the law, “ . . . open, competitive examinations for testing applicants for appointment in the competitive service which are practical in character and as far as possible related to matters that fairly test the relative capacity and fitness of the applicants for the appointment sought . . . an individual may be appointed in the competitive service only if he has passed an examination or is specifically excepted from examination.” Why do you think this requirement exists? Do you think it is a helpful but necessary requirement or a harmful, irrelevant one? Why?
