As the economy and technology evolves, human resource practices often follow suit. There have been many profound changes, one of the most obvious and influence is the emergence of e-business. As part of this business revolution, web-based online recruiting has changed the way businesses hire people and the way people search for jobs (In, 2007). There are numerous advantages to using online recruiting, especially because using online applications allows businesses to reach a large pool of potential job seekers with a click of a button. In addition, e-recruiting methods have the added benefit of having cost savings, efficiency and convenience for all both businesses and job seekers (In, 2007).
Traditional methods of recruiting caused multiple problems as they were rife with delays and miscommunications. This resulted in a protracted hiring process with high costs associated. Often, job seeking is a time sensitive process and delays in hiring can cost the company time and money, something many companies can ill afford (In, 2007). To fully utilize online recruiting, HR must understand how to use the sites and which websites are the most effective. For every quality site, there are a thousand sites that are harmful. HR will need to fully vet each option and find out the applying habits of their target audience. A Fortune 500 company would be more likely to use LinkedIn as it is a huge database, whole membership grew by 25% last year (Cohen, 2013). In addition, LinkedIn can reach “passive” candidates, those that are not actively looking for employment but could potentially be interested if the right opportunity presents itself. Smaller business would be better served looking at job sites such as Indeed, which pulls from hundreds of databases and offers job seekers a centralized…...

...Introduction Being recruited to play a collegiate sport can be a wonderful, yet nerve wrecking experience for any high school athlete that wishes to compete at the next level. For most athletes, the process is normal, following the rules to a “T”, but for other, more sought after athletes many coaches are willing to do anything and everything to get that player to come to their school and into their program. This even includes violating the NCAA recruiting rules and policies. While it is true that many of these violations go unpunished or even unnoticed by the NCAA, the truth is that recruiting violations are becoming more and more predominant in recent years thanks in part to social networks and other forms of communication. Most violations are on the men’s side of athletics, mainly in basketball and football. This does not mean that there is a lack of violations on the women’s side though. Violations have begun to occur more regularly in women’s athletics in recent years. Due to the recent frequency of recruiting scandals being brought to public attention thanks in part to media, NCAA recruiting violation scandals are the topic of conversation for many households, especially those who have young athletes who are wanting to be recruited by their favorite schools. NCAA Definition of “Recruiting” and Their Position The NCAA defines “recruiting” as “any solicitation of prospective student-athletes or their parents by an institutional staff member or by a representative...

Seasonality and Recruiting Talent

...Seasonality and recruiting talent The Challenges Recruitment and retention have long been identified as one of the hospitality and tourism industry's biggest challenges. This is due in part to the highly labour intensive nature of the industry, especially in contexts where customer service expectations are high (Hughes & Rog, 2008). The Icelandic tourism season is relatively short which forces companies to hire a lot of seasonal workers for a short period of time. Thus, it can be hard to get the right people, at the right time for the right job. Seasonality is a big factor in the recruiting processes and can furthermore affect the development and retention within the company. When employees foresee only a couple of month recruitment, they´ll need some motivation, encouragement and benefits to consider returning again next season. NN needs to focus on the recruitment processes and select the employees who have developing potential and express a genuine interest in working for the company for more than one season. Recruitment is being carried out on a relatively large scale on a regular basis due to the fluctuations in the business. As said before, NN is located in the Northeast corner of Iceland some 480 km away from Reykjavík. The community consists of about 3000 inhabitants and is therefore dependant upon hiring transient workers as well as local people. Therefore, the way the company attracts and retains employees is of great importance. Seasonality...

Illegal Recruiting

...Abstract College football has become a major money making event. Major college schools can bring in well over one hundred million dollars over a season. In 2008 Texas brought in $120,288,370 for the school that also help fund other sports throughout the university. (Robbins, 2009) This is due to the major network deals, sponsorships, donations from boosters, attending major college bowls, and many other benefits of being a major college program. These programs are expected to compete for a championship each and every year and are expected to fill the seats that normally average between eighty thousand to one hundred thousand seats. In order to do this there is high competition to get the very best players all around the country and the NCAA has very strict guidelines on what colleges can do to persuade the players to come play there. This isn’t a new problem but with modern technology the problem has become very visible because NCAA officials and competing schools are able to trace the exact moves that teams are doing for the players. Also players are being offered money and benefits that seventeen and eighteen year old kids have never seen before in their life. Penalties are becoming harsher every year and coaches and schools are starting to really suffer but what there is a fine line to walk between cheating and just putting your best effort towards getting the player. Process of Investigating Illegal Recruiting The NCAA has broken the process of...

...How do these articles impact your understanding, attitudes and feelings about learning in an online environment? How does this seem to fit with your most efficient and effective way of learning? What ways can you leverage the online technology and this method of learning to maximize what you take away from this program? An online learning environment is not a problem for me, in fact I spent majority of my junior and senior year off college taking online courses using the blackboard system. The system that we are currently using is a bit different for me, it’s a lot more detailed and has many more features than blackboard. For some people online learning is a breeze and others it’s a never ending obstacle . After digesting this information I feel that online classes are just as effective as traditional classes, solely because in online environments you are expected to gather various forms of data, research, and other forms of evidence to help better your understanding of the topics that are presented to you just as in a traditional classroom setting.

Internet Recruiting

..."Internet Recruiting" Please respond to the following: From the case study, anticipate two issues that would need to be addressed if a recruitment area is included on the company’s Website. Support your position with evidence or examples. Make a case for MMH to outsource its recruiting efforts versus including a recruitment area on the company’s Website. Support your position with evidence or examples. Two issues that would need to be addressed if a recruitment area is included on the MMHs company website would be design and accuracy of using the software for proper recruitment. Design is highly important to any website whether it be for selling, recruitment, or strictly for entertainment. While many people are still without a PC there are those that have just basic dial up connection accessing the internet. Making it imperative that the website is able to load quickly in all frames of connection (load time is critical to any website) anything after 3-5 seconds has a high chance of being closed out by the user. The site must be friendly and easy to navigate while containing enough detailed information about the company, the position, and requirements. Ensuring that applicants are able to upload or paste and copy in resumes. Not all applicants want to fill out applications, this can keep many qualified applicants from applying. Lastly, security, the highly most important thing of online recruitment. As, there is much personal information given out by applying...

Recruiting the Qualified Candidate

...Consulting Project Recruiting Qualified Candidates Tammy Miller Sullivan University HRL 621 Introduction Recruiting is the most important and crucial role of any human resource professional today including staffing agencies. Staffing and recruiting good qualified candidates is getting tougher and tougher these days. When I spoke with Mrs. Sinkhorn with Nesco Resource, she stated that finding good employees is one of their biggest issues these days. Employees working for staffing agencies are in a unique position compared to clients they work for. This is due to they can work this client of the staffing agency and if they do not like the job or have an issue they have choices such as asking the agency to fine them something else. I have researched some recruiting options that I think would help assist Nesco in their recruiting process.   Recruitment What is recruiting or recruitment? It is the act of getting of recruits (employees). Recruiting good qualified talent is a challenge. It also described the process that a company uses to find the qualified candidate to fill the positions within their company. Even with today’s recession, it is difficult to fill certain types of jobs which make the jobs of the recruiters extremely hard.

...In businesses today, there is a uniform strategy to operate the business effectively at a lower cost and online recruiting is one way to do business cheaper. Online recruiting allows for an organization to cut recruiting cost while also acquiring the talent needed to help the organization succeed. According to Hauer (2004), while online recruiting saves money, it also saves time on the applicants behave as well as the company’s. The Internet is everywhere and it’s the fastest most affordable way to attract qualified applicants to fill vacant positions. Traditional ways of recruiting such as newspaper posting can be very expensive while limiting the content needed to attract the specific qualified individual the company is seeking. Most online job boards allow employers unlimited space to sell their organization to the right candidates. Newspapers price ads by the amount of space being used so it becomes very expensive to post important details about a particular job. Online recruiting offers convenience of being able to apply for jobs anytime and anywhere. Human resource (HR) professionals aren’t available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to accept resumes from potential applicants. This also allows job seekers who are employed to search for other jobs since Traditionally, HR professionals also had to take countless hours to shuttle through enormous amounts of resumes, whereas job boards allow employers to set up screening questions to help filter through resumes with the...

Based on prior research, the six antecedents of customer satisfaction – ease of use, design, speed, security, information content, and customer support service – are proposed, and the effects of experience on the relationships between these and customer satisfaction are analyzed using a structural multi-group (a high-experience group and a low-experience group) model. The results show that design, speed, security, information content, and customer support service have a significant influence on customer satisfaction in the high-experience group or the low-experience group, but ease of use does not have a significant influence on customer satisfaction in either of the groups. Also, the results relating to the influence of the level of customer experience reveal that the effects of design, security, speed, and information content on customer satisfaction were...

E Recruiting

...Over seventy five percent of Career Centers across the country use E-Recruiting. It has become a new way to work around the traditional ways of addressing job openings. Most company’s today main goal is to figure out how to make the most money, while spending the least amount of money. And e- recruiting falls right in line with helping them achieve this goal. But what some HR personnel are starting to worry “Is this form of e-recruiting working too well?” Today e- recruiting has become one of the fastest and easiest ways for potential job workers to apply for their jobs. A few key stokes is all it may cost to apply for a job. The country likes the new idea of not having to take time to spend and create paperwork just to get an interview. But with easier applying processes comes more applicants, and this cannot always be a good thing. As stated in the textbook, “Lockheed Martin received 300,000 resumes from which it filled 900 positions.” And although some view this as a good problem, it is still a problem that is causing burdens. Because as the applicant pool grows so is the number of recipients that will potentially be rejected. “Now organizations are compelled to ask themselves how this mass of failed applicants influence their reputation.” Companies need to stay a step in front of the game and be prepared for any obstacles that may come their way with e- recruiting. They need to be cautious with the number of candidates that apply online for a position...

...Address the recipient by his or her title and surname. If these aren’t stated on the job ad, get in touch and ask. Never say ‘To whom it may concern’. State clearly which position you are applying for. If the job ad gives a reference number, include it. Very briefly mention your most relevant qualification(s) for the position. Say why you are applying to this specific job. An engineering graduate recruiter advises: ‘Highlight briefly why you would be the right choice for the role and that you have taken time to understand the company.’ Link the job requirements to your skills. ‘The covering letter should be a chance to add clarity and detail to certain points on your CV’, explains our graduate recruiter, adding: ‘If the candidate has achieved something specific on work placements it is a good idea to highlight this.’ If you have additional, specific skills that are relevant to the job, mention them briefly here. State your availability for interview and to start work. ‘Yours sincerely’ is the correct sign-off for a letter addressed to a named individual. !"#$%&'$()*+,$ -*./0&12/*3$ -%!!$456$ $78987$#9:8#9$ $ #$-,2/,1;,)$"7!#$ $ ?&@),$A*3,=$ BC$$G&/,)$>*3=.?/@3D$ H*//@3D0&1$ H("$"IJ$ $ $ 5,&)$.=/*1,)$-,)+@S,$E==@=/&3/U$$ $ 5.)@3D$1N$/@1,$&/$R&=/,)3$R?,S/)@S$1N$M*)'$O*)1,P$/0,$;&=@=$*O$/0,$S*12&3N[=$O@)=/$S*)2*)&/,$=*S@&?$ ),=2*3=@;@?@/N$),2*)/K$=*1,/0@3D$L$3*/,$EF>$0&=$&$=/)*3D$),S*)P$@3$D@+,3$@/=$+*?.3/,,)$2)*D)&11,U$L3$ /0,$=.11,)$O*??*M@3D$1N$O@)=/$N,&)$&=$&3$.3P,)D)&P...

...Argumentative essay: Online education  A stronger thesis would be, “Online classes are a better choice than traditional classroom learning because they’re more flexible for students and teachers, they're less expensive and they let student’s works at their own pace.” Do you know online education? Online education is one of the ways to learn various subjects. We can take a lecture or hand in our assignments through the Internet. Therefore, people can learn what they want to learn whenever or wherever they want. In America, some colleges adopt this education. However, this new way to educate students is not prevailed in all countries because in some countries, they have enough educational system for students. Although some countries have enough colleges or educational system, the online education should be a part of educational system in all colleges for three reasons: cost, environmental and flexibility. First, online education can give a good influence in educational cost. To be sure, some people have enough money to go to college and online education is not necessary because there are many professors who teach various kinds of subjects and we can ask directly what we want to know without paying money. However, when we think about the poor people with some problems, we can understand the thought that online education should be a part of educational system. For example in Japan, according to the research by Tokyo University, about ten thousand students retired from their...

Recruiting & Staffing

... achievement that is likely only attainable through a search firm. The last recruitment approach and the most modern of the three is electronic recruiting. “Today it’s an integral part of the recruiting strategy for companies of all sizes and many industries” (Gale, 2002, June 20, para. 1). It is a very resourceful and economical system for finding potential applicants.

Multinational Recruiting

...Multinational Recruitment Individuals need to prove their out-of-the-box working techniques in a multinational company. A multinational company operates in two or more countries. It manages production or delivers services internationally. The country that has the headquarters is called the home, while other countries are referred to as the host countries.

Selection and recruiting is the job of human resources, known as the HR department of the entity.
