Recruitment plays an important method in building a motivated organization that meets the demand of the organizations mission and goals. Recruiting has never been stress-free and with today’s competitive workplace, it has only become more challenging. Businesses struggle with finding candidates that are qualified for the occupation; it all starts with the recruiting process.
The recruitment process begins with advertising the position, such as local paper or online postings. Your goal is to fill the job opening with the most qualified candidate. To reach the most appropriate candidates for the job, write an advertisement that speaks to them clearly and directly. Describe the job responsibilities in an appealing, but clear way, starting with the most important duties. Make sure to list requirements such as education, experience, skills or certifications. End with clear directions on how to apply for the position, along with materials to include such as resume or references.
Following after advertising the position, is resume screening.
Next, is the interview process which can consist of a phone interview or a face to face interview. The phone interview allows the employer to determine if the candidate’s qualifications, experience, workplace preferences, and salary needs are corresponding with the position and your business. The telephone interview saves employee time and eliminates unlikely candidates. A behavioral interview is the best tool you have to identify candidates who have the behavioral traits and characteristics that you have selected as necessary for success in a particular job.
