Competition from other companies can reduce the pool of qualified workers or raise salary expectations beyond what the firm is willing to pay. Social attitudes about particular types of employment will also affect the supply of workers . If a job is considered uninteresting, oppressive or low in status applicants will shun it unless the wages are extremely attractive. Responsibility of the overall recruitment process normally is assigned to human resource managers. They are responsible for designing and implementing a recruitment program that will meet the companys personnel needs while complying with all legal requirements.

Job posting involves announcing job openings to all current employees. Bulletin board notices or printed bulletins can be used for this purpose. Some firms have developed computerized job printing systems so that employees can obtain information on their computer screens.

Informal communication among managers can lead, discovery that the best candidate for a job is already in working in a different section of the firm. In some cases, referrals are made through support networks established by certain group of employees.

Some universities and technical programs have their own newsletters to alert students and graduates to work opportunities, and an enterprising


c. Field recruiting:
Companies interested in recruiting new college graduates generally do more then simply contact school placement offices. They send recruiters to the campus itself to tell students what the company can offer and to screen potential applicants. The recruiting trip is coordinated with the placement offices, which arranges facilities, helps to publicize the visit & perhaps does an initial screening of the students.

d. Internship:
Placement directors, students and recent college graduates tend to agree that the internships offered by many organization constitute one of the most effective recruiting strategies. Internships usually involve employment the summer before graduation from college, and of course, require a prior recruitment and selection process. Internship give the students a unique opportunity to experience a company first hand, they also provide mangers with an excellent opportunity to further access the students capabilities and potentials

e. Unsolicited application:
Direct application to the employer was most likely means of obtaining a job.

The selection process:

Once an effective recruitment program has supplied enough job applicants the organization faces the task of choosing the one over specific job. Selection process involves various selection devices and tools such as selection devices, including application forms, including application forms, reference checks, tests, physical examinations, and interviews.

a: Application forms:
The application form is a sheet or small booklet with blanks to be filled in by the applicant. Its purpose is to supply the organization with basic information about candidates background: education, work experience, previous salary and so forth. The application resume may cover much of same ground but the application form has the advantage of a standardize format which allow managers throughout the organization to glean the relevant information at a glance.

b: Physical Examinations:
As one of the final steps before the hiring decision a physical examination may be conducted by a physician or nurse appointed by the organization. In some firms, the candidates fills out a health questionnaire and only those with apparent health problems are referred to a physician. These exams have several purposes. They help an organization place its employees in suitable jobs; someone with a back ailment for instance would not be assigned to lift heavy objects.

Managers can then use the test results are guidelines in asking candidate about their abilities, experience, and interests.

Types of test: a:Measures of proficiency, achievement or knowledge:A wide range of skills and information can be measured. In a test of manual dexterity, for eg:- a test of clerical skills might involve spelling, reading comprehension, and arithmetic.

b:Measures of aptitude or potential ability:These differ from proficiency tests in that they assess the candidates ability to learn new skills rather then the amount he or she has already earns.

c:Measures of mental ability or intelligence:These could be seen on a persons abilities with words, numbers, logical reasoning, and spatial relationships.

d: Measures of personality :Personality inventories attempt to construct a profile of a persons attitudes, behavior and habits. Friendliness, confidence, conventinality,and dominance are examples of what such a test might measure.

e: Measures of interests:-

Tests in this category attempt to discover a persons likes and dislikes. They may ask such seemingly irrelevant questions.


Pencil and paper questionnaires essentially inquire into a job applicants attitudes about theft and have been developed largely as an alternative to the polygraph.



The selection interview

Interviews can be used at several stages of selection process. Screening interviews that take place early in the process. Sometimes the final stage in a process is a job offer interviews, at which the best candidate is offered the position.

Interview Scenarios:
Interviews can follow several scenario. In the group interview, a number of candidates are interviewed at once. Generally , they are allowed to discuss job related matters among themselves while one or more observers rate their performance.

In the panel interview, one candidate meets with a panel of two or more representatives of the firm. One of the panelist may act as chairperson, but each of the firm reprsentatives takes part in questioning & discussion. The most common scenario is one-on-one interview, in which the candidates meets privately with a single interviewer.

The Selection Decision

When all the candidates have been tested and interviewed and their references checked, the final decision generally rests with the supervisor or head of the department in which the job opening exists, who will select the one candidate most qualified for job. The human resource department however regularly must approve the salary & benefit package to ensure consistency of pay scales throughout the firm. In the satisfaction of filling a job opening the human resource staff should not forget the applicants who failed to get the job. The usuccess of a selection decision depends on all previous steps in staffing process, the initial planning, the recruitment of qualified techniques and various selection technique to find the best candidate for the job.

Without the right people, no firm can function effectively. For a recruitment program to be successful, managers should co-operate with the human resource staff to define needs and predict vacancies. B: Depending on its particular needs, an organization may recruit either from its current staff or from outside the firm or both. For internal recruiting the principal methods are job posting, the use of computerized skills inventories and referrals from other departments. For external recruiting organization rely on advertisements, pub;ic or private agencies, field recruiting and internship.
