dc.description.abstractWe study here the strategy hiring above the α-quantile of the hired staff. This strategy was introduced first by Archibald and Martınez in 2009. We show here more results like lower and upper bounds for many interesting quantities for the general case, i.e., 0 < alpha < 1. For the main parameter, number of hired candidates, we were able to obtain the exact and limiting distributions for alpha = 1/d, with d a positive integer.
