Sample Management Paper on Recruitment method

A good strategy for recruiting employees helps in finding the best clientele to work in the
organization. Recruiting methods include social and online recruiting, employment branding, and
mobile outreach. Each method of recruiting has its advantages and disadvantages. The method
that attracts my attention is the online recruiting. According to (Rahman et al. 2014),online
recruiting involves the use of channels, such as job boards and social networks. Businesses and
organizations have begun using technology for most of its operations. Online recruiting is
efficient and does not consume a lot of time and energy. It eliminates the unqualified personnel
before the selection of the managers in the organization.
Online recruitment is also known as E-recruitment since it's the use of webs; software's to
attract and evaluate people to hire in an organization. Candidates may be interviewed online after
selection before calling for a physical interview. These help in saving costs while selecting
people whose personalities fit the organization's goals. This recruitment method interests me
because it can be used together with another offline method. Performing online recruitment
requires the following steps to ensure no unnecessary conflict or delays due to poor
communication(Rahman et al. 2014). The first step is to post a job ad that will attract interested
applicants. The next step is to seek employee referrals, followed by sourcing candidates on
portfolio sites. Selected candidates will then undergo a pre-employment test to validate their
qualifications. The candidates can be interviewed through video interviewing software before
been called for the job. After which the final selection is made.
