Recruitment focuses on attracting qualified people possessing technical skills and necessary experience required for the vacant position (HRtoGO, 2011).There is an array of recruitment methods, which a company may utilize.
Companies use the media to advertise open positions. The forms of media include; print media like magazines, newspapers; television, internet and radio. The employer lists critical competencies and roles of potential employees, provides a deadline for application and contact address.
These are organizations that link employers and employees. Employers provide details onopen positions; while applicants provide updated resumes, cover letters and contact details. These agencies collate this information and link employers to employees and vice versa.
Use of Employment Agencies offers companies a wide selection of qualified labor. Companies receive a list of verified and shortlisted individuals who meet their requirements. This method bypasses the lengthy task of the recruitment process. Reduction on costs for advertisements, interviews and booking of venues occurs. Onlyshortlisted candidates get an invitation.
