What is the difference between recruitment and selection?
Before we answer this question that is stated above, we will first define recruitment as well as selection. All employers are in search of an adequate candidate for the vacant position. Since the workforce supply has gone high, employers are now left with a great opportunity to choose the best candidate for the job.
As we have mentioned earlier, it is a process of searching out applicants and inspiring them to apply for the job. This process is very long as different activities are involved which includes analyzing the requirements of the job. Below are the activities that are involved in this process of recruiting employees.
- Analyzing the job requirement
- Making adverts for the vacancy
- Making the candidates attracted to the job
- Managing the response
- Scrutinizing the applications
- Shortlisting the candidates
Human Resource Management (HRM) handles the recruitment either externally or otherwise. Internal recruitments are done through promotion, ex-employees, references, transfers, retired employees, retrenched employees, and so on. While external recruitment is done through unsolicited applicants, the internet, third-party agencies, advertisement, etc.
