What is a Job Vacancy?

Job Vacancy occurs when there is a job position available in an organization. Similar to the scene we witnessed that depicted an opening for a shooter’s position. To fill a position in the organization, companies generally conduct a recruitment process.

The recruitment process consists of a pool of potential candidates who are eligible for the job, from this pool certain candidates are selected. This process generally involves identifying the need of a candidate by the company and then receiving the application for the job to be done.

To fill a vacant job, job postings are undertaken. The job posting is in the form of advertisements. Traditionally, job postings were published in newspapers. In today’s time, they are published online across various job portals or relevant social media portals. These postings can be either internal or external.

As the name suggests, internal postings are circulated within the organization only. This means the advertisement is only for existing employees. External postings on the other hand are circulated outside the organization.

Post recruitment process, selection of the candidates is conducted. There are several 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.
