Alternatives Alternative 1 The advantages of online recruitment

Cost effective Putting a job vacancy on your own company website costs you nothing while putting one on a job board usually only costs a couple of hundred pounds or euros. When you consider that a recruitment consultant fee for a candidate could be anything up to 20% of the first year's salary, and that advertising in a national newspaper can cost thousands, you can immediately see the cost savings possible with online recruitment.

Online recruitment is quick A job vacancy can be put on a job site in the morning, the first applications arrive by lunchtime, and a candidate interviewed by the end of the day. Of course, it isn't always like this. It isn't even often like this. But the fact that such things do happen so quickly gives an indication of just how quick recruiting online can be.

Online recruitment gives you a better chance of success Traditional print advertising — be it national, local or trade press — faces limitations: the success of a vacancy advertisement depends on people happening upon the ad on a particular page in a particular issue. Online recruitment is different. A job vacancy advertisement on a job board or website is there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for as long as you desire. Candidates can come back to it again and again. From office administrator to Financial Director: they are all online.

Online recruitment gives you a bigger audience Many people new to online recruitment think that using job sites is only effective if you are looking for young net-savvy Facebook-type people. This simply isn't the case. Research consistently shows that the average age of candidates using job sites is around 35 years old. And the trend is up. Online recruitment is now a standard part of most people's job hunting no matter what level or age.

Online recruitment is easy It really is. Posting a job on your own site is strightforward enough. Most job sites and CV databases are very user-friendly and you don't need to have an in-depth knowledge of IT to post a vacancy advertisement. Usually, all you need is your job description, a bit of time and a credit card. And, if you have any problems the job board sales team to help you.

The disadvantages of online recruitment

Too many candidates While you may wonder how too many candidates applying for your job could ever count as a disadvantage, it is a fact that dealing with inappropriate, irrelevant and bad candidates is the bugbear of many a HR manager. Candidate spam can waste a lot of time. However, with a bit of thought about what job site you use, how you write your job description and using candidate screening and filtering tools on job boards, it is possible to reduce the number irrelevant applicants.

It won't always work

That's right. Online recruitment won't always work. Not every job vacancy you post can or will be filled online. There will always be difficult-to-fill jobs that can only be filled by recruitment consultants, headhunters or in other ways. However, most companies tend to hire for pretty standard job roles so this is seldom an issue. And with more and more job seekers choosing the internet to look for jobs, and more and more job sites and job boards specialising in ever more diverse areas, those difficult-to-fill jobs are becoming fewer and fewer Online recruitment offers clear advantages over traditional recruitments methods. At the same time, however, one must be cognisant of the disadvantages inherent in online recruitment if only to avoid the pitfalls that they may produce.

Alternative 2
Verification of alternatives and assumptions: This is one of the most crucial steps in project feasibility analysis. When various alternatives are being provided with regarding choice of technology, capacity, financing etc. In fact the foundations will be strong when the following alternatives are supplied along with the details of the project profile: 1. 2. 3. 4. Proposed cost structure. Work schedules. Exchange mechanism. Continent factors.

(1) Proposed cost structure: The spending for the project deliverables are always in terms of costs, irrespective of the nature of the product such as research costs, overhead cost etc. Therefore it would be ideal to label all the necessary expenditure incurred during the project implementation, which deserves to be treated as cost. The production cost depends on availability of the information about the required resources, manpower, work program, type of technology, available resources, and distribution costs, skills of the labour. (2) Project team: It is advisable to prepare the report under the supervision of experts since they are aware time constraints, funds, and resource requirement for the project. To conduct a feasibility study the ideal team members would comprise. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Industry economist. Market analyst. Management expert. Technical head. Project Manager.

(3) Project meant for expansion: Feasibility studies for a new project might be slightly different from already existing projects whose interest is to expand their scale of operation and the scope of coverage. Depending upon the size of the project, it should be clear from the new proposal whether the existing internal organizational structure and supporting facilities will be sufficient or need some adjustments.

Costs and Benefits
Costs
Timeframe and costs
1. Timeframe Fieldwork would be scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2010, assuming it is commissioned in 2009 . Exact timeframes and deadlines would be agreed with the Clinet H2. 2 Costs Sessions with internationally based job seekers: H2 is unable to give accurate costings at this point, and those provided here are by no means exhaustive. Should the job seekers be interested in pursuing these strands, and a firm brief be produced, then a more definitive idea of costs will be produced. Five international research agencies have been contacted (with a short brief) and have provided very different costs. However, it is possible to give ballpark figures. For each area the costs are based on 12 paired sessions and 6 one-to-one sessions. Two agencies have costed for India: Option 1: The research is outsourced to an agency or agencies, that is/are based overseas, and they set up the sessions, secure the location and conduct the research: between Rs5,78,,400 – Rs 9,23,200 + expenses Option 2: A H2 researcher would conduct some or all of the research, whereas an internationally based agency would set up the sessions, secure the location and provide translators if necessary: between Rs3,65,500 - Rs5,78,450 + expenses Three agencies have costed for all 4 areas: Option 1 (as above): between Rs 30,000 - £54000 + expenses According to one agency: ‘the USA is by far the most expensive place to conduct research like this (more expensive than UK) (est Rs 14,000 to Rs 9,000). India is the cheapest (est Rs6,000 – Rs 8,000). China and Malaysia are pretty similar (est Rs 12,000 Rs 16,000).’ Option 2 (as above): between Rs24,000 – Rs 54,000 + expenses Please note that these are agency costs only – they exclude any H2 charges. Telephone interviews with international agents/sponsors: Rs20,800 excluding VAT Sessions with potential home undergraduate seekers : Rs,650 0excluding VAT Sessions with potential home postgraduate students: Rs 82,950 excluding VAT VAT

Feasibility of the Recommended Solution
Technical Feasibility
In technical feasibility the following issues are taken into consideration. • • Whether the required technology is available or not Whether the required resources are available - Manpower- programmers, testers & debuggers - Software and hardware Once the technical feasibility is established, it is important to consider the monetary factors also. Since it might happen that developing a particular system may be technically possible but it may require huge investments and benefits may be less. For evaluating this, economic feasibility of the proposed system is carried out. This includes the suitability of the site for the intended use including an environmental impact analysis. The report shall be based upon verifiable data and contain sufficient information and analysis so that a determination may be made on the technical feasibility of achieving the levels of income or production that are projected in the financial statements. The repost shall identify any constraints or limitations in this financial projections and any other facility or design related factors which might affect the success of the enterprise. The report shall also identify and estimate project operating and development costs and specify the level of accuracy of these estimates and the assumptions on which these estimates have been based. For the purpose of the technical feasibility reports, the project engineer or architect may be considered an independent party provided neither the principals of the firm nor any individual of the firm who participate in the technical feasibility report has a financial interest in the project, and provided further that no other individual or firm with the expertise necessary to make such a determination is reasonably available to perform the function

Financial Feasibility
For any system if the expected benefits equal or exceed the expected costs, the system can be judged to be economically feasible. In economic feasibility, cost benefit analysis is done in which expected costs and benefits are evaluated. Economic analysis is used for evaluating the effectiveness of the proposed system. In economic feasibility, the most important is cost-benefit analysis. As the name suggests, it is an analysis of the costs to be incurred in the system and benefits derivable out of the system. Click on the link below which will get you to the page that explains what cost benefit analysis is and how you can perform a cost benefit analysis. Cost Benefit Analysis
Based upon the market analysis, project concept plan and cost estimate, pricing recommendations and attendance projections will be made and a three or five year operating pro forma will be prepared detailing probable revenue, expenses, profits, cash

Head Hunting.com flow and pre-tax return on investment. The projection will detail expenditures by revenue category. These projections will be run based upon the estimates of the project's cost and proposed financing structure (owner equity and loans). A sensitivity and breakeven analysis is also included. Our proprietary financial model clearly details all the underlying assumptions that drive the pro forma. This allows you to evaluate the reasonableness of the conclusions. We believe this is very important to you as our client, as you are the person who has to make the business decision of whether or not to proceed. An opinion on the reliability of the financial projections and the ability of the business to achieve the projected income and cash flow. An assessment of the cost accounting system, the availability of short-term credit for seasonal business, and the adequacy of raw materials and supplies.

Operational Feasibility
Operational feasibility is mainly concerned with issues like whether the system will be used if it is developed and implemented. Whether there will be resistance from users that will effect the possible application benefits? The essential questions that help in testing the operational feasibility of a system are following. • • • • Does management support the project? Are the users not happy with current business practices? Will it reduce the time (operation) considerably? If yes, then they will welcome the change and the new system. Have the users been involved in the planning and development of the project? Early involvement reduces the probability of resistance towards the new system. Will the proposed system really benefit the organization? Does the overall response increase? Will accessibility of information be lost? Will the system effect the customers in considerable way

Is a measure of how well a proposed system solves the problems, and takes advantages of the opportunities identified during scope definition and problem analysis phases and how well it satisfies the requirements identified in the requirements analysis phase of system development 1. In proposed system we are going to implement all their requirements , so they can work. 2. We are providing familiar and friendly user interfaces to the users.

3. With the implementation of the proposed system their working environment is not going to change lot more.

Schedule Feasibility
Lack of understanding of user needs prevents website from achieving goal of being ‘user focused’ - Inadequate testing/web statistics and inaccurate analysis of web statistics prevent understanding of user needs - Lack of resource leads to inadequate levels of testing - Consultancy fails or is inadequate and provides false data.

A project will fail if it takes too long to be completed before it is useful. Typically this means estimating how long the system will take to develop, and if it can be completed in a given time period using some methods like payback period. Schedule feasibility is a measure of how reasonable the project timetable is. Given our technical expertise, are the project deadlines reasonable? Some projects are initiated with specific deadlines. You need to determine whether the deadlines are mandatory or desirable

Environmental Feasibility
Environmental Feasibility is the most frequently used method for evaluating the effectiveness of a new system, the procedure is to determine the benefits and savings that are expected from a candidate system and compare them with costs. If benefits outweigh costs, then the decision is made to design and implement the system. An entrepreneur must accurately weigh the cost versus benefits before taking an action. Time Based: Contrast to the manual system management can generate any report just by single click. Cost Based: No special investment is needed to manage the tool. No specific training is required for employees to use the tool. Investment requires only once at the time of installation. The software used in this project is freeware so the cost of developing the tool is minimal .

Legal Feasibility
A measure of how well a solution can be implemented with in existing legal and contractual obligations. Determines whether the proposed system conflicts with legal requirements, e.g. a data processing system must comply with the local Data Protection Acts

Human Feasibility
In this stage, the project's alternatives are evaluated for their impact on the local and general culture. For example, environmental factors need to be considered and these factors are to be well known. Further an enterprise's own culture can clash with the results of the project Deals with the way end users feel about proposed system. A cultural feasibility asks a system will work in a given organizational climate

Revision Checklist for Feasibility and Recommendation Reports
As you reread and revise your feasibility or recommendation report, watch out for problems such as the following: • • Write a good introduction in which you indicate the situation and the audience and provide an overview of the contents. State requirements—those factors that influence the decision or the choice of options. (And remember to state how important requirements are in relation to each other.) Indicate how the field of options was narrowed to the ones being compared. Organize the comparison of the options using the point-by-point approach. Don't use the whole-to-whole approach. At the end of each comparative section, state the best choice in terms that point of comparison. Include a summary table, if possible, in which you summarize all the key data in table form. (For example, see the summary table in the laptop computer recommendation.) Provide technical background, if necessary for understanding the comparative discussion. Discuss the background on the problem or opportunity—what brought about the need for the report. Include strong sections of definition, description, or both, as necessary, using the guidelines on content, organization, and format in the chapters on definition and description. Include a conclusions section where you restate all the key conclusions from the comparison section. State secondary conclusions in the conclusions section—and based them on requirements that you state in the requirements section of the report. State a final conclusion in the conclusions section—one that states which is the best choice. Include a recommendation section where you make the recommendation. Briefly mention the key factors influencing the recommendation
