Select distinct PersonID order by HiredDate desc

RE: How to get the result set from the table using a query. Enter to see the table and result set.

(OP)
SELECT DISTINCT PERSONID,MAX(hiredate) AS hiredate FROM [Employment].[Employment] WHERE StatusTypeId = 3 group by personid ORDER BY hiredate DESC

Thanks for the suggestion. I added MAX(hiredate) with the GROUP BY clause.

RE: How to get the result set from the table using a query. Enter to see the table and result set.

You don't need DISTINCT here. GROUP BY gives you one record per PersonID.
