What is Recruitment and Selection?
Recruitment is a pool of potential candidates who are eligible for the job, from this pool certain candidates are selected. The recruitment process generally involves identifying the need of a candidate by the company and then receiving the application for the job to be done.
Once the applications are received, companies or recruitment agencies weed out the applications that are not suitable for the job or are unqualified. The remaining candidates are then ranked and on this basis, they are normally called for an interview.
Stages of the Selection Process
There are a number of ways to make the selection process, such as interviews, aptitude tests, group tasks, presentations, and role-playing tasks. These are done to help select the best candidate for the job.
The interview process helps to evaluate a candidate who is best suited for a job. One can determine if the candidate’s experience is relevant to the job or not. Qualities such as confidence, vision, verbal skills, and extroversion can be gauged from an interview process.
Raj seems to have confidence and good verbal skills and displays leadership traits while communicating. He also displays his intelligence and aptitude while talking about the real estate project that the company had undertaken. For these reasons, he is hired on the spot.
Effective recruitment of the right person for the job saves training time and money for the organization.
