There appears to be an increasing trend to the use of more systematic procedures in personnel selection. In this paper, a fuzzy multiple objective programming approach for personnel selection is presented. The proposed method integrates the decision-maker's linguistic assessments about subjective factors such as excellence in oral communication skills, personality, leadership, and quantitative factors such as aptitude test score within the multiple objective programming framework. The importance degree of each objective is considered by applying the composition operator to the objective's membership function and the membership function corresponding to its fuzzy priority defined by linguistic variables. The decision approach presented in this paper is promising for a structured evaluation of the short-listed candidates.
