4.1 The Recruitment Process

Learning objectives.

  • Discuss the need for forecasting human resource needs and techniques for forecasting.
  • Be able to explain the steps to an effective recruitment strategy.
  • Be able to develop a job analysis and job description.

The recruitment process is an important part of human resource management (HRM). It isn’t done without proper strategic planning. Recruitment is defined as a process that provides the organization with a pool of qualified job candidates from which to choose. Before companies recruit, they must implement proper staffing plans and forecasting to determine how many people they will need. The basis of the forecast will be the annual budget of the organization and the short- to long-term plans of the organization—for example, the possibility of expansion. In addition to this, the organizational life cycle will be a factor. Organization life cycle is discussed in Chapter 2 “Developing and Implementing Strategic HRM Plans” . Forecasting is based on both internal and external factors. Internal factors include the following:

  • Budget constraints
  • Expected or trend of employee separations
  • Production levels
  • Sales increases or decreases
  • Global expansion plans

External factors might include the following:

  • Changes in technology
  • Changes in laws
  • Unemployment rates
  • Shifts in population
  • Shifts in urban, suburban, and rural areas
  • Competition

Once the forecasting data are gathered and analyzed, the HR professional can see where gaps exist and then begin to recruit individuals with the right skills, education, and backgrounds. This section will discuss this step in HR planning.

Recruitment Strategy

Although it might seem easy, recruitment of the right talent, at the right place and at the right time, takes skill and practice, but more importantly, it takes strategic planning. In Chapter 2 “Developing and Implementing Strategic HRM Plans” , development of staffing plans is discussed. An understanding of the labor market and the factors determining the relevant aspects of the labor market is key to being strategic about your recruiting processes.

Based on this information, when a job opening occurs, the HRM professional should be ready to fill that position. Here are the aspects of developing a recruitment strategy:

  • Refer to a staffing plan. This is discussed in Chapter 2 “Developing and Implementing Strategic HRM Plans” .
  • Confirm the job analysis is correct through questionnaires.
  • Write the job description and job specifications.
  • Have a bidding system to recruit and review internal candidate qualifications for possible promotions.
  • Determine the best recruitment strategies for the position.
  • Implement a recruiting strategy.

The first step in the recruitment process is acknowledgment of a job opening. At this time, the manager and/or the HRM look at the job description for the job opening (assuming it isn’t a new job). We discuss how to write a job analysis and job description in Section 4.1.2 “Job Analysis and Job Descriptions” .

Assuming the job analysis and job description are ready, an organization may decide to look at internal candidates’ qualifications first. Internal candidates are people who are already working for the company. If an internal candidate meets the qualifications, this person might be encouraged to apply for the job, and the job opening may not be published. Many organizations have formal job posting procedures and bidding systems in place for internal candidates. For example, job postings may be sent to a listserv or other avenue so all employees have access to them. However, the advantage of publishing open positions to everyone in and outside the company is to ensure the organization is diverse. Diversity is discussed in Chapter 3 “Diversity and Multiculturalism” . We discuss more about internal and external candidates and bidding systems in Chapter 5 “Selection” .

Then the best recruiting strategies for the type of position are determined. For example, for a high-level executive position, it may be decided to hire an outside head-hunting firm. For an entry-level position, advertising on social networking websites might be the best strategy. Most organizations will use a variety of methods to obtain the best results. We discuss specific strategies in Section 4.3 “Recruitment Strategies” .

Another consideration is how the recruiting process will be managed under constraining circumstances such as a short deadline or a low number of applications. In addition, establishing a protocol for how applications and résumés will be processed will save time later. For example, some HRM professionals may use software such as Microsoft Excel to communicate the time line of the hiring process to key managers.

Once these tasks are accomplished, the hope is that you will have a diverse group of people to interview (called the selection process). Before this is done, though, it is important to have information to ensure the right people are recruited. This is where the job analysis and job description come in. We discuss this in Section 4.1.2 “Job Analysis and Job Descriptions” .

Job Analysis and Job Descriptions

The job analysis is a formal system developed to determine what tasks people actually perform in their jobs. The purpose of a job analysis is to ensure creation of the right fit between the job and the employee and to determine how employee performance will be assessed. A major part of the job analysis includes research, which may mean reviewing job responsibilities of current employees, researching job descriptions for similar jobs with competitors, and analyzing any new responsibilities that need to be accomplished by the person with the position. According to research by Hackman and Oldham (Hackman & Oldham, 1976), a job diagnostic survey should be used to diagnose job characteristics prior to any redesign of a job. This is discussed in Chapter 7 “Retention and Motivation” .

To start writing a job analysis, data need to be gathered and analyzed, keeping in mind Hackman and Oldham’s model. Figure 4.1 “Process for Writing the Job Analysis” shows the process of writing a job analysis. Please note, though, that a job analysis is different from a job design. Job design refers to how a job can be modified or changed to be more effective—for example, changing tasks as new technology becomes available. We discuss job design in Chapter 7 “Retention and Motivation” and Chapter 11 “Employee Assessment” .

Figure 4.1 Process for Writing the Job Analysis

The Process for Writing the Job Analysis: select jobs to study; determind information needed; identify sources of data; determine methods of data collection; evaluate and verify data; use data to begin the process of writing the analysis, then the job description

The information gathered from the job analysis is used to develop both the job description and the job specifications. A job description is a list of tasks, duties, and responsibilities of a job. Job specifications , on the other hand, discuss the skills and abilities the person must have to perform the job. The two are tied together, as job descriptions are usually written to include job specifications. A job analysis must be performed first, and then based on that data, we can successfully write the job description and job specifications. Think of the analysis as “everything an employee is required and expected to do.”

Figure 4.2 Sample Job Analysis Questionnaire

A sample job analysis questionnaire

This questionnaire shows how an HR professional might gather data for a job analysis. Questionnaires can be completed on paper or online.

continued sample of job analysis questionnaire

Two types of job analyses can be performed: a task-based analysis and a competency- or skills-based analysis. A task-based analysis focuses on the duties of the job, as opposed to a competency-based analysis, which focuses on the specific knowledge and abilities an employee must have to perform the job. An example of a task-based analysis might include information on the following:

  • Write performance evaluations for employees.
  • Prepare reports.
  • Answer incoming phone calls.
  • Assist customers with product questions.
  • Cold-call three customers a day.

With task job analysis, the specific tasks are listed and it is clear. With competency based, it is less clear and more objective. However, competency-based analysis might be more appropriate for specific, high-level positions. For example, a competency-based analysis might include the following:

  • Able to utilize data analysis tools
  • Able to work within teams

You can clearly see the difference between the two. The focus of task-based analyses is the job duties required, while the focus of competency-based analyses is on how a person can apply their skills to perform the job. One is not better than the other but is simply used for different purposes and different types of jobs. For example, a task-based analysis might be used for a receptionist, while a competency-based analysis might be used for a vice president of sales position. Consider the legal implications, however, of which job analysis is used. Because a competency-based job analysis is more subjective, it might be more difficult to tell whether someone has met the criteria.

Once you have decided if a competency-based or task-based analysis is more appropriate for the job, you can prepare to write the job analysis. Of course, this isn’t something that should be done alone. Feedback from managers should be taken into consideration to make this task useful in all levels of the organization. Organization is a key component to preparing for your job analysis. For example, will you perform an analysis on all jobs in the organization or just focus on one department? Once you have determined how you will conduct the analysis, a tool to conduct the analysis should be chosen. Most organizations use questionnaires (online or hard copy) to determine the duties of each job title. Some organizations will use face-to-face interviews to perform this task, depending on time constraints and the size of the organization. A job analysis questionnaire usually includes the following types of questions, obviously depending on the type of industry:

  • Employee information such as job title, how long in position, education level, how many years of experience in the industry
  • Key tasks and responsibilities
  • Decision making and problem solving: this section asks employees to list situations in which problems needed to be solved and the types of decisions made or solutions provided.
  • Level of contact with colleagues, managers, outside vendors, and customers
  • Physical demands of the job, such as the amount of heavy lifting or ability to see, hear, or walk
  • Personal abilities required to do the job—that is, personal characteristics needed to perform well in this position
  • Specific skills required to do the job—for example, the ability to run a particular computer program
  • Certifications to perform the job

Once all employees (or the ones you have identified) have completed the questionnaire, you can organize the data, which is helpful in creating job descriptions. If there is more than one person completing a questionnaire for one job title, the data should be combined to create one job analysis for one job title. There are a number of software packages available to help human resources perform this task, such as AutoGOJA.

Once the job analysis has been completed, it is time to write the job description and specifications, using the data you collected. Job descriptions should always include the following components:

  • Job functions (the tasks the employee performs)
  • Knowledge, skills, and abilities (what an employee is expected to know and be able to do, as well as personal attributes)
  • Education and experience required
  • Physical requirements of the job (ability to lift, see, or hear, for example)

Figure 4.3 Sample Job Description

A sample Job description from Workplace Alaska

Notice how the job description includes the job function; knowledge, skills, and abilities required to do the job; education and experience required; and the physical requirements of the job.

Once the job description has been written, obtaining approval from the hiring manager is the next step. Then the HR professional can begin to recruit for the position. Before we discuss specific recruitment strategies, we should address the law and how it relates to hiring. This is the topic of Section 4.2 “The Law and Recruitment” .

Tips to Writing a Good Job Description

Be sure to include the pertinent information:

  • Duties and responsibilities
  • terms of employment
  • qualifications needed
  • Think of the job description as a snapshot of the job.
  • Communicate clearly and concisely.
  • Make sure the job description is interesting to the right candidate applying for the job.
  • Avoid acronyms.
  • Don’t try to fit all job aspects into the job description.
  • Proofread the job description.

Key Takeaways

  • The recruitment process provides the organization with a pool of qualified applicants.
  • Some companies choose to hire internal candidates —that is, candidates who are already working for the organization. However, diversity is a consideration here as well.
  • A job analysis is a systematic approach to determine what a person actually does in his or her job. This process might involve a questionnaire to all employees. Based on this analysis, an accurate job description and job specifications can be written. A job description lists the components of the job, while job specifications list the requirements to perform the job.

Do an Internet search for “job description.” Review three different job descriptions and then answer the following questions for each of the jobs:

  • What are the job specifications?
  • Are the physical demands mentioned?
  • Is the job description task based or competency based?
  • How might you change this job description to obtain more qualified candidates?
  • Why do the five steps of the recruitment process require input from other parts of the organization? How might you handle a situation in which the employees or management are reluctant to complete a job analysis?

Questions Application Interview

A well-designed recruitment and selection process allows organisations to both attract a wide pool of applicants and narrow the selection down until you’ve found the perfect candidate for every opening. 

In this post, we’ll explain the differences between recruitment and selection, explore why these two phases of the hiring process are so important and share the main steps that are involved. 

Key takeaways:

Recruitment and selection are two key parts of the hiring process that allow companies to find and attract the best talent.

Recruitment involves getting a job description in front of as many people as possible. Selection involves narrowing down the pool until you’re left with the best person for the role. 

The recruitment and selection process involves six main steps: creating a job description, advertising the role, screening candidates, conducting interviews, carrying out tests and assessments and selecting the successful candidate.

What is recruitment?

Recruitment is the process that organisations use to source, attract and identify candidates for their open positions. The goal of recruitment is to gather as many suitable candidates for the role as possible (through as many fitting recruitment methods as possible). 

Broadly speaking, there are two types of recruitment: 

External recruitment: This is when recruiters search for candidates from outside of their organisation. They might do this by posting on job sites, using social media or posting job descriptions on their own career site. External recruitment can also involve contacting passive candidates — those who aren’t actively looking for work.

Internal recruitment : This involves looking for candidates who already work for the organisation in a different role. Many companies choose to advertise the job internally before opening up the search to external candidates. This can allow them to save money since it typically costs less to promote someone than to hire a new candidate. 

What is selection?

Selection is the process of assessing candidates’ qualities, expertise and experience to narrow down the pool of applicants until you’re left with the best person for the role. This process usually involves conducting interviews and using various tests and assessments to evaluate each candidate. 

Why does recruitment and selection matter?

An effective recruitment and selection process allows companies to source, attract and identify the best candidates for every open role. This can help to reduce attrition, increase productivity and even improve the company’s bottom line. 

What is the difference between recruitment and selection?

Recruitment and selection are two different stages in the hiring process. Recruitment involves getting the job description in front of as many potential candidates as possible.

Selection is about narrowing down the pool of applicants until you’re left with the strongest candidate. Here are some of the main differences between recruitment and selection: 

Why optimal recruitment and selection is important

Here are four reasons why an optimal recruitment and selection process is key to an organisation’s success: 

1. Allows you to attract the best talent

An effective recruitment process connects you with top candidates. This is particularly important when you remember that around 70% of the workforce is made up of passive candidates, who probably wouldn’t come across your job openings without active engagement from your recruitment team. 

And it’s not just about finding the right candidates: a 2019 study found that almost half of jobseekers in high-demand industries had turned down a job offer because of a poor recruitment experience. A solid recruitment and selection process can help convince top candidates that you’re the right company for them. 

2. Reduces turnover and absenteeism

When it’s done right, a strong recruitment and selection process can improve employee engagement, reduce absenteeism and even increase retention. After all, when you find the right person for a role, there’s a much better chance that they’ll perform to the best of their ability and stick around for the long term (especially if you have great employee induction practices in place). 

3. Saves your organisation money

Leaving a role sitting empty for too long can be a big drain on a company’s finances. But according to a 2017 Harris Poll, the average cost of a bad hire is almost £15,000 . This means that both recruitment (which allows companies to find candidates for each open position) and selection (which ensures they choose the right candidate) help companies to save money in the long run. 

4. Creates a level playing field

By formalising the recruitment and selection process, you can ensure that it doesn’t leave room for unconscious bias on the part of hiring managers. This gives everyone with the right skills and experience the same opportunity to land a role, regardless of their background.

6 steps in the recruitment and selection process

The recruitment and selection process can be broken down into six key steps: 

1. Create meaningful job descriptions

recruitment and selection job sourcing and selection

The first step in the process is to put together a clear and detailed job description for each role. This is the candidate’s first introduction to the role — and often to your organisation — so it’s important to get it right.

To ensure that you only receive applications from candidates with the right skills and experience, make sure your job description is as clear as possible about your requirements for the role.

2. Advertise postings in the right places

recruitment and selection sourcing posting

Next, you’ll need to publish your job description . For generalist roles, you could post it on general job sites, social media platforms like LinkedIn and your company careers site. For more specialist roles, you might want to investigate more specialised job boards.

If you want to advertise the position internally, you could also publish your job description in your employee newsletter, send it out by email or even post it on a physical notice board. 

3. Screen resumes thoroughly

Next, you’ll begin screening candidates against the requirements of the role so you can eliminate those who aren’t suitable. Many companies use blind screening to assess candidates at this stage.

This is when you view CVs or applications with identifying information removed so that characteristics like the candidate’s race, age, gender or socioeconomic background don’t affect your decisions. 

4. Schedule, host and evaluate interviews

recruitment and selection interview scheduling

When you have narrowed down your initial pool of applicants, the next stage is usually to interview the strongest ones. An interview is an opportunity to meet the candidates and get a better understanding of their capabilities. It also allows you to determine whether they’re a good fit for your company culture .

Depending on the seniority of the position, you might conduct several rounds of interviews with various stakeholders, eliminating the weakest candidates after each round.

5. Run various tests and assessments

Next, you’ll need to determine whether the remaining candidates have the right skills and qualities for the role. Depending on the nature of the role, you might decide to use: 

Personality tests: These are designed to test a candidate’s soft skills and determine how they will behave in certain situations. 

Knowledge tests: These present candidates with specific situations or questions that assess their expertise, training and experience. 

Psychometric tests: These are designed to assess candidates’ intelligence, and usually involve solving problems within a time limit. 

Technical skills assessments: These provide an objective assessment of candidates’ technical skills, making it easy to compare one candidate to another. 

6. Select and hire your ideal candidate

personio recruitment and selection offer stage

The final stage is to review the candidates based on the results of their interviews and any tests or assessments they have completed. This allows you to hone down your pool until you have the best person for the job. 

At this stage, you can extend a job offer to your chosen candidate. If they accept it, you’ll sign an employment contract together and they’ll begin working for you after they’ve completed their notice period in their current role. 

Now, you can begin onboarding. Don't forget to build and run a process that keeps in mind the big-picture (like access to the right technology) with the smaller nuances (like sending an automated introduction email ).

How does recruitment and selection work in nonprofits?

Finding the right people to turn your nonprofit’s mission into reality is often one of the most difficult parts of being a nonprofit organisation, especially with the limited budgets that many tend to have to contend with. 

Because of that, nonprofits must have a recruiting system in place that makes it easy to monitor each applicant’s progress and for key stakeholders and interviewees to be able to access the information they need quickly and easily. 

Nonprofits also need to be able to track which recruitment channels are performing best, so that they can adjust their spend accordingly to the job advertisement sites that are going to give the best return on investment for their already limited budgets.

Once a nonprofit has recruited a pool of applicants, selection involves the decision-making needed to narrow down that pool and find the applicants that are both the most invested in your mission and likely to bring the most impact with their skills. Even if applicants are ultimately not hired, it is worth keeping a talent pool for volunteering or future roles.

In a nonprofit, this process may also require additional screening such as police clearance, checking that they have adequate child protection training and similar checks that will ensure the people you are helping are protected. Find out how Personio supports nonprofits here .

What you’ll learn to do: Discuss the recruitment process

The essence of recruiting is expressed in researcher, advisor and bestselling author Jim Collin’s classic recommendation: “get the right people on the bus.” This analogy, presented in his 2001 bestseller Good to Great , reflects the realities of operating in a dynamic and disruptive environment. [1] In the years since, this insight has been widely recognized as a critical business success factor. Recent economic, labor and technological trends have only increased the stakes. In this section, we’ll discuss the recruitment process and the importance of employer branding.

Selection and Recruitment Process in the Organization


Recruitment is basically a business activity that comprises all the processes that are involved in the identification, attraction, and selection of individuals either from within or without the organization to fill pre-identified job positions. Basically, the recruitment process involves a number of activities which includes identification and attracting of potential candidates, evaluation of the latter and ultimate selection of suitable candidates for the job (Cohen, 2009:9). This paper therefore presents an overview of the recruitment and selection process in the organization and an in-depth analysis of all the activities involved therein.

Importance of recruitment

Ideally, the recruitment and selection process is a crucial element of personal and development activity in all organizations. Irrespective of their size, structure or orientation organization tends to hire new people or maintaining employees’ current positions via recruitment and selection (Notes, 2009, Para 2). According to Chermack & Swanson, 2008: 132), effective recruitment and selection process and decision provide ideal means for the organization to ensure that there is an adequate supply of labor. In order for an organization to effectively and efficiently perform the organizational activities thus enabling it to meet its objectives it must seek adequate and quality human resources. In addition, recruitment provides the organization with a leeway of obtaining new work force; the latter of which poses as a potential source of new skills and a point of adjusting attitudes and cultures in the organization. Recruitment and the related set of activities are crucial in that they aid the organization in obtaining the right number of people to perform the tasks and activities in the organization and meet the predetermined goals and objectives with absolute effectiveness.

Skills expertise form one of the most important element of the organization and a major determinant of the organizational success or failure. If an organization is a stead ahead of the rest in the industry in terms of skills and expertise, it is bound to have a competitive edge over the others (Matt, 2009, Para. 4). Effective recruitment and selection strategies in the organization enable the organization to attract the right such skills and expertise the right people to apply or the job and selection of the best candidates from the applicants as well as training and orientating the hired individuals to successfully induct them into the organizations systems, policies, procedures, and practices (Chermack & Swanson, 2008: 131). Consequently, getting the right people for the job to a great extent influences the employee’s relations. While an effective selection and recruitment process enhances such relations, the opposite has a great likelihood of derailing the later.

The recruitment process and decisions

In most organizations, the decisions that concerns recruitment are made by the human resources department. However, line managers, supervisors, and subordinate participate in making the hiring process through identification of employment needs on behalf of the HR and recommending such decision (Nisha, 2008, Para. 4). For instance, subordinates who feel overburdened by work may suggest to the supervisors the need for additional workers who in return recommend hiring to the absolute decision making organs in the organization i.e. the human resource department and other top managers (Kelly, 2001: 6). In an ideal industry, the human resource department upon identification of an employment need and subsequent making of the employing decision advertises the positions to be filled either internally or externally, shortlist the possible candidates for the job, carry out interviews and screening on the latter and if they feel satisfied with the candidates in the first contact, they send them over to the line managers for further screening and interviews (Paul, 2009, p.12). Consequently, the managers make decision concerning who is suitable for the position and hence make returns to the human resources who make the final hiring decision and enter into a contract with the employees.

Classification of recruitment

An organization can either recruit internally or externally. Internal recruitment is the recruitment in which the organization limits the existing job vacancy only for its existing workforce. In fact, internal recruitment opens opportunities for employee promotion as well as offering them a chance to develop new skills within the organizational context (Sarah, 2008, Para. 4). The sources of internal recruitment includes, transfers, promotions, hiring the services of retired employees, reengaging the retrenched employees, upgrading, demotions, and considering dependants and relatives close to a deceased employee (Paul,2009, p.7).

External recruitment on the other hand involves the organization seeking to fill the emerging job vacancies with individuals from without the organization hence the advertisements are accessible and open to applications from individual outside the organization. According to Matt (2009, p. 8), external recruitment is applied when the organization intends to expand its current work force and acquire new skills. The sources of external recruitment includes press advertisements, hiring from education institution, placement agencies, and outsourcing employment exchanges programs labor contractors unsolicited applicants employees referrals and recruitments at the gates of organization or factories (Sarah, 2008, Para. 15).

The job search process

The job search process is a series of steps that are involved from the time one realizes a need of a certain job to the time he or she finally get the job and accept the job offer. The process is composed of six distinct steps although they vary with individuals’ specific needs, job goals, and the nature of the job in question. Such include self assessment, developing job objectives, developing the resume and the covering letter, coming up with a job search strategy, preparing for, and attending to the interviews and accepting the job offer upon selection if at all the latter is consistent with one’s employment objective.

In a recruitment process, selection starts with short listing and ends with the final selection, once the decision on who are suitable for the job has been made. A number of tools are utilized by the employers in the selection process. Such includes, resumes, application letters, application forms certificates, testimonials, letters of recommendations, aptitude tests, IQ tests personality tests oral interviews among other (Sarah, 2008, Para. 9). The type of tools used varies from one organization to another and the type of the job in question. However, organizations have exhibited a great degree of homogeneity in the utilization of tools. For instance, the resume and the cover letter are the fundamental tools for short listing the applicants for the interviews, presentation of certificates, and undertaking of other tests. In order to shortlist, human resource screens and evaluates the application forms, cover letters and resumes put forth by the applicants with an objective of ascertaining the applicants who meet the minimum job requirements in terms of skills, experiences, academic qualification, and other appealing characteristics of the applicant in line with the specifications in the position’s advertisement. To make the short listing more accurate and efficient, organizations have resorted to highly computerized evaluation of the application forms. Online resumes have also become common in the selection process in order to select applicants who proceed to the next selection stage.

Irrespective of the fact that aptitude tests are rarely used as lone tool of selection, they (together with IQ and personality test) are used to decide who fill positions in the organizations. Consequently, aptitude tests refer to short questionnaires with diverse questions that are administered to the applicants with limited time to test their thinking ability, sharpness, aptness in critical thinking among other skills. The questions in the test may either be open question or structured with options from which the candidate is to choose the answer he or she feels more appropriate to the respective question (Accel- team, 2009: Para 3).

In the context of the selection process, an interview is an organized forum in which the employers meets with each candidate for the position and administers structured questions; an equivalent of question and answer session. Use of interview is very common in many organizations. According to a research report published in Myrna (2009, p.13), it was revealed that of all the organizations included in the survey almost a unit utilized interviews at some time during recruitment and selection. However, research revealed that interviews are an extremely common tool of selection in cases of external selection. In fact, use of interviews in internal employment was low (27%) compared to 98% in cases on external recruitment (Myrna, 2009, Para. 7).

Legal issues surrounding recruitment

The labor laws require that employers be acquainted i.e. have knowledge and ability to explain and fully adhere to legislations related to the contract of employment, equal opportunities or rather discrimination free employment practices which bars the employer from discriminating candidates or applicants on the basis of their race ethnicity, nepotism line, sex, physical appearance, disability health status among other causes of bias and hallow effects, the health and safety of employees and applicants, terms of contract (terms and conditions of employment) as well as professional ethics governing recruitment and the legal implication of breaching such ethics (Chartered institute of personnel and development, n.d, Para. 6).

Recruitment and selection is critical to the organization just like human resources. In fact, the quality of human resources is a direct outcome of the recruitment and selection process. As such, recruitment process begins with identification of vacancies existing in the organization until the employees are finally inducted into the organization as new employees. Irrespective of the fact that the hiring decisions are made by the HR, line managers, supervisors, and subordinates contributes to the recruitment and selection process. Ideally, there are basically two sources of employment which includes both the internal and external sources. The Job search process forms an integral part of the recruitment process since it is a potential source of recruitment. Logically, Selection begins with short listing and ends when the employees are finally obtained. The latter employs diverse tools and approaches including resumes, application forms, and interviews personality tests among other application which varies from one organization to the next. Finally, the selection and recruitment process must uphold to the legality of employment and selection including the equal opportunity laws of contracts, anti-employment discrimination laws among others.

Recruitment Process and Performance Evaluation

Introduction, definitions and the importance explanation, consistency in the employee job performance, appraisal system’s elements.

The Human Resources (HR) department is in charge of recruiting the finest talent the firm requires to achieve the company’s goals. The candidate search is accomplished through a rigorous recruitment process that starts with the initial position questionnaire or interview. Consequently, a job analysis is performed, followed by a job design and a performance appraisal. The paper demonstrates an overview of the recruitment process’s fundamental principles, importance, and performance appraisal components.

Pre-employment interviews are screening tools businesses use to identify applicants who closely match the characteristics they need in an employee. Williams (2022) states that employers save time and money by using surveys or questionnaires to identify top prospects from a broad pool of applications swiftly. As a result, the organization may fill a position in a shorter time while focusing on properly screening potential personnel (Williams, 2022). Companies may reduce turnover and increase productivity by selecting the most competent applicants.

The resulting job analysis is critical in ensuring that the best applicant is selected. According to Darwinbox (n.d.), job analysis is a systematic method of gathering all information about a specific job, including qualifications required, roles, duties, and processes, to develop an accurate job description. The components of the job analysis include position, description, and job worth (Darwinbox, n.d.). This method also provides an overview of the physical, emotional, and associated human attributes necessary for a position. Employee performance may therefore be objectively assessed against the job performance criteria.

Employees who work in well-designed jobs are effective, productive, motivated, and contented. Brougham-Chandler (2022) acknowledges that the process of determining what specific activities a person will perform within a work function and how the role will fit into the larger organization is known as job design. It also includes determining the job holder’s tasks and responsibilities, how the work is done, and what resources and assistance the job holder requires. According to HRM research, job design is a way of attaining the organization’s strategic goals (Guan & Frenkel, 2018). People who are involved with their roles and find their work satisfying have greater levels of job satisfaction (Brougham-Chandler, 2022). This statement not only indicates that employees are motivated but also that they are more likely to generate high-quality work.

A systematic examination of a worker’s job performance and overall contribution to the company is referred to as a performance appraisal. Guevara (2022) claims that performance appraisal is critical because it allows HR to understand how employees perceive the organization and identify business areas that require improvement. Another significant benefit of performance assessment is that it focuses on a company’s bottom line (Guevara, 2022). Employees and managers can use performance appraisals to refocus their duties, see how their work affects the firm, and match the company’s goals and values with their jobs and standard processes. Engaged employees who construct their employment by enhancing job resources and decreasing hindrance demands likely to perform better (Guan & Frenkel, 2018). Hence, managers should support work crafting by offering regular informal and formal individual feedback on both successful and problematic job crafting attempts.

Each step is connected and vital to the next to maintain consistency in employee work performance. For instance, job analysis can assist in determining the type of employees needed to fulfill a particular responsibility. To conduct a successful job analysis, a company should first conduct an initial position interview to determine the essential needs for the effective execution of the occupation’s tasks. Job analysis and design are inextricably linked since the latter depends on the former for accomplishment. Job design is the division of work-related responsibilities assigned to a team member and the specification of how a person implements them. As a result, by emphasizing critical criteria, the job design process is a foundation for the performance appraisal procedure.

An appraisal system aims to identify areas for improvement, reduce attrition, and increase an organization’s productivity. The following elements are included in the performance appraisal: identified goals and objectives, ongoing feedback, flexibility, data-driven insights, benefits and incentives, self-evaluation, and a performance improvement plan (Guevara, 2022). Based on my evaluation, I consider all elements vital, but I highlight the importance of continuous feedback and rewards. For instance, Guan and Frenkel (2018) suggest that incentives and rewards must be included in performance appraisals because they boost employee performance. Guevara (2022) acknowledges that they pave the path for higher levels of employee motivation, efficiency, and a sense of belonging. Employee development and growth require detailed, regular, and proactive feedback (Guevara, 2022). Moreover, research on behavioral change and the constant improvement necessary for delivering continuous feedback on goal progress (Cespedes, 2022). As a result, a performance appraisal process must guarantee that workers receive adequate feedback in order for them to understand their total contribution and influence on the firm.

The first job interview establishes the foundation for an efficient selection approach. Work duties are determined via job analysis, and the framework for their execution is built through job design. Performance appraisal procedures guarantee that an employee’s performance meets the defined requirements. An assessment system seeks to find areas for development, minimize attrition, and boost productivity in a business. As a result, HR should guarantee that all preceding stages are successfully conducted.

How to Write an Essay Introduction (with Examples)   

essay introduction

The introduction of an essay plays a critical role in engaging the reader and providing contextual information about the topic. It sets the stage for the rest of the essay, establishes the tone and style, and motivates the reader to continue reading.

Check and revise – checklist for essay introduction , key takeaways , frequently asked questions .

An introduction is the opening section of an essay, paper, or other written work. It introduces the topic and provides background information, context, and an overview of what the reader can expect from the rest of the work. 1 The key is to be concise and to the point, providing enough information to engage the reader without delving into excessive detail. 

The essay introduction is crucial as it sets the tone for the entire piece and provides the reader with a roadmap of what to expect. Here are key elements to include in your essay introduction: 

  • Hook : Start with an attention-grabbing statement or question to engage the reader. This could be a surprising fact, a relevant quote, or a compelling anecdote. 
  • Background information : Provide context and background information to help the reader understand the topic. This can include historical information, definitions of key terms, or an overview of the current state of affairs related to your topic. 
  • Thesis statement : Clearly state your main argument or position on the topic. Your thesis should be concise and specific, providing a clear direction for your essay. 

Before we get into how to write an essay introduction, we need to know how it is structured. The structure of an essay is crucial for organizing your thoughts and presenting them clearly and logically. It is divided as follows: 2  

  • Introduction:  The introduction should grab the reader’s attention with a hook, provide context, and include a thesis statement that presents the main argument or purpose of the essay.  
  • Body:  The body should consist of focused paragraphs that support your thesis statement using evidence and analysis. Each paragraph should concentrate on a single central idea or argument and provide evidence, examples, or analysis to back it up.  
  • Conclusion:  The conclusion should summarize the main points and restate the thesis differently. End with a final statement that leaves a lasting impression on the reader. Avoid new information or arguments. 

recruitment process essay introduction

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to write an essay introduction: 

  • Start with a Hook : Begin your introduction paragraph with an attention-grabbing statement, question, quote, or anecdote related to your topic. The hook should pique the reader’s interest and encourage them to continue reading. 
  • Provide Background Information : This helps the reader understand the relevance and importance of the topic. 
  • State Your Thesis Statement : The last sentence is the main argument or point of your essay. It should be clear, concise, and directly address the topic of your essay. 
  • Preview the Main Points : This gives the reader an idea of what to expect and how you will support your thesis. 
  • Keep it Concise and Clear : Avoid going into too much detail or including information not directly relevant to your topic. 
  • Revise : Revise your introduction after you’ve written the rest of your essay to ensure it aligns with your final argument. 

Here’s an example of an essay introduction paragraph about the importance of education: 

Education is often viewed as a fundamental human right and a key social and economic development driver. As Nelson Mandela once famously said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” It is the key to unlocking a wide range of opportunities and benefits for individuals, societies, and nations. In today’s constantly evolving world, education has become even more critical. It has expanded beyond traditional classroom learning to include digital and remote learning, making education more accessible and convenient. This essay will delve into the importance of education in empowering individuals to achieve their dreams, improving societies by promoting social justice and equality, and driving economic growth by developing a skilled workforce and promoting innovation. 

This introduction paragraph example includes a hook (the quote by Nelson Mandela), provides some background information on education, and states the thesis statement (the importance of education). 

This is one of the key steps in how to write an essay introduction. Crafting a compelling hook is vital because it sets the tone for your entire essay and determines whether your readers will stay interested. A good hook draws the reader in and sets the stage for the rest of your essay.  

  • Avoid Dry Fact : Instead of simply stating a bland fact, try to make it engaging and relevant to your topic. For example, if you’re writing about the benefits of exercise, you could start with a startling statistic like, “Did you know that regular exercise can increase your lifespan by up to seven years?” 
  • Avoid Using a Dictionary Definition : While definitions can be informative, they’re not always the most captivating way to start an essay. Instead, try to use a quote, anecdote, or provocative question to pique the reader’s interest. For instance, if you’re writing about freedom, you could begin with a quote from a famous freedom fighter or philosopher. 
  • Do Not Just State a Fact That the Reader Already Knows : This ties back to the first point—your hook should surprise or intrigue the reader. For Here’s an introduction paragraph example, if you’re writing about climate change, you could start with a thought-provoking statement like, “Despite overwhelming evidence, many people still refuse to believe in the reality of climate change.” 

Including background information in the introduction section of your essay is important to provide context and establish the relevance of your topic. When writing the background information, you can follow these steps: 

  • Start with a General Statement:  Begin with a general statement about the topic and gradually narrow it down to your specific focus. For example, when discussing the impact of social media, you can begin by making a broad statement about social media and its widespread use in today’s society, as follows: “Social media has become an integral part of modern life, with billions of users worldwide.” 
  • Define Key Terms : Define any key terms or concepts that may be unfamiliar to your readers but are essential for understanding your argument. 
  • Provide Relevant Statistics:  Use statistics or facts to highlight the significance of the issue you’re discussing. For instance, “According to a report by Statista, the number of social media users is expected to reach 4.41 billion by 2025.” 
  • Discuss the Evolution:  Mention previous research or studies that have been conducted on the topic, especially those that are relevant to your argument. Mention key milestones or developments that have shaped its current impact. You can also outline some of the major effects of social media. For example, you can briefly describe how social media has evolved, including positives such as increased connectivity and issues like cyberbullying and privacy concerns. 
  • Transition to Your Thesis:  Use the background information to lead into your thesis statement, which should clearly state the main argument or purpose of your essay. For example, “Given its pervasive influence, it is crucial to examine the impact of social media on mental health.” 

recruitment process essay introduction

A thesis statement is a concise summary of the main point or claim of an essay, research paper, or other type of academic writing. It appears near the end of the introduction. Here’s how to write a thesis statement: 

  • Identify the topic:  Start by identifying the topic of your essay. For example, if your essay is about the importance of exercise for overall health, your topic is “exercise.” 
  • State your position:  Next, state your position or claim about the topic. This is the main argument or point you want to make. For example, if you believe that regular exercise is crucial for maintaining good health, your position could be: “Regular exercise is essential for maintaining good health.” 
  • Support your position:  Provide a brief overview of the reasons or evidence that support your position. These will be the main points of your essay. For example, if you’re writing an essay about the importance of exercise, you could mention the physical health benefits, mental health benefits, and the role of exercise in disease prevention. 
  • Make it specific:  Ensure your thesis statement clearly states what you will discuss in your essay. For example, instead of saying, “Exercise is good for you,” you could say, “Regular exercise, including cardiovascular and strength training, can improve overall health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.” 

Examples of essay introduction 

Here are examples of essay introductions for different types of essays: 

Argumentative Essay Introduction Example:  

Topic: Should the voting age be lowered to 16? 

“The question of whether the voting age should be lowered to 16 has sparked nationwide debate. While some argue that 16-year-olds lack the requisite maturity and knowledge to make informed decisions, others argue that doing so would imbue young people with agency and give them a voice in shaping their future.” 

Expository Essay Introduction Example  

Topic: The benefits of regular exercise 

“In today’s fast-paced world, the importance of regular exercise cannot be overstated. From improving physical health to boosting mental well-being, the benefits of exercise are numerous and far-reaching. This essay will examine the various advantages of regular exercise and provide tips on incorporating it into your daily routine.” 

Text: “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee 

“Harper Lee’s novel, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ is a timeless classic that explores themes of racism, injustice, and morality in the American South. Through the eyes of young Scout Finch, the reader is taken on a journey that challenges societal norms and forces characters to confront their prejudices. This essay will analyze the novel’s use of symbolism, character development, and narrative structure to uncover its deeper meaning and relevance to contemporary society.” 

  • Engaging and Relevant First Sentence : The opening sentence captures the reader’s attention and relates directly to the topic. 
  • Background Information : Enough background information is introduced to provide context for the thesis statement. 
  • Definition of Important Terms : Key terms or concepts that might be unfamiliar to the audience or are central to the argument are defined. 
  • Clear Thesis Statement : The thesis statement presents the main point or argument of the essay. 
  • Relevance to Main Body : Everything in the introduction directly relates to and sets up the discussion in the main body of the essay. 

recruitment process essay introduction

Writing a strong introduction is crucial for setting the tone and context of your essay. Here are the key takeaways for how to write essay introduction: 3  

  • Hook the Reader : Start with an engaging hook to grab the reader’s attention. This could be a compelling question, a surprising fact, a relevant quote, or an anecdote. 
  • Provide Background : Give a brief overview of the topic, setting the context and stage for the discussion. 
  • Thesis Statement : State your thesis, which is the main argument or point of your essay. It should be concise, clear, and specific. 
  • Preview the Structure : Outline the main points or arguments to help the reader understand the organization of your essay. 
  • Keep it Concise : Avoid including unnecessary details or information not directly related to your thesis. 
  • Revise and Edit : Revise your introduction to ensure clarity, coherence, and relevance. Check for grammar and spelling errors. 
  • Seek Feedback : Get feedback from peers or instructors to improve your introduction further. 

The purpose of an essay introduction is to give an overview of the topic, context, and main ideas of the essay. It is meant to engage the reader, establish the tone for the rest of the essay, and introduce the thesis statement or central argument.  

An essay introduction typically ranges from 5-10% of the total word count. For example, in a 1,000-word essay, the introduction would be roughly 50-100 words. However, the length can vary depending on the complexity of the topic and the overall length of the essay.

An essay introduction is critical in engaging the reader and providing contextual information about the topic. To ensure its effectiveness, consider incorporating these key elements: a compelling hook, background information, a clear thesis statement, an outline of the essay’s scope, a smooth transition to the body, and optional signposting sentences.  

The process of writing an essay introduction is not necessarily straightforward, but there are several strategies that can be employed to achieve this end. When experiencing difficulty initiating the process, consider the following techniques: begin with an anecdote, a quotation, an image, a question, or a startling fact to pique the reader’s interest. It may also be helpful to consider the five W’s of journalism: who, what, when, where, why, and how.   For instance, an anecdotal opening could be structured as follows: “As I ascended the stage, momentarily blinded by the intense lights, I could sense the weight of a hundred eyes upon me, anticipating my next move. The topic of discussion was climate change, a subject I was passionate about, and it was my first public speaking event. Little did I know , that pivotal moment would not only alter my perspective but also chart my life’s course.” 

Crafting a compelling thesis statement for your introduction paragraph is crucial to grab your reader’s attention. To achieve this, avoid using overused phrases such as “In this paper, I will write about” or “I will focus on” as they lack originality. Instead, strive to engage your reader by substantiating your stance or proposition with a “so what” clause. While writing your thesis statement, aim to be precise, succinct, and clear in conveying your main argument.  

To create an effective essay introduction, ensure it is clear, engaging, relevant, and contains a concise thesis statement. It should transition smoothly into the essay and be long enough to cover necessary points but not become overwhelming. Seek feedback from peers or instructors to assess its effectiveness.
