The focus of this paper is on the criteria in the multi-criteria analysis in the selection of personnel in the tourism industry. In the introductory part, the context of multi-criteria analysis as the decision-making segment is given, and subsequently, basic human resource management concepts with the emphasis on personnel selection are presented using the methods of multi-criteria analysis. The concepts of criteria and preferences are also defined and illustrated through the literature; and personality tests, whose results can be an integral part of the criteria, are briefly overviewed.
