Recruitment can be defined as one of the crucial portions of the Human Resource Management. The process of recruitment involves attracting, short listing, choosing and finally appointing the most deserving candidates for a specific job profile within the organization. The mentioned area can also be defined as the process involving recruiting individuals for unpaid positions that include unpaid training roles and voluntary roles (Schermerhorn et al. 2014). In this era of modernization, usage of social media for recruiting highly experienced and efficient candidates is widespread. Popular social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn are used by HR professional for posting recruitment notifications and selecting candidates appropriate for the vacant posts.
A justification for having chosen such area
Some of the reasons behind the cruciality of recruitment in an organization are as follows:
Filling up the vacant position with appropriate candidates
An HR manager must list down the skills that are directly associated with the offered job position and the skills which will enhance the chance of an employee to get recruited for the job post. This is considered to be the first step of recruiting the appropriate candidate (Stone and Stone 2013). Putting up an inefficient advertisement may result in obtaining very less application for the job position and hence recruiting inefficient candidates.
Pivotal role in the growth of the organization
Being an integral part of the company, due to recruitment, the companies get access to a huge pool of talent under one roof. A good number of candidates applies for a single position on the basis of the skill etched by the company.
