I have spent a fruitful spring term for studying Recruitment and Selection course and it is a really interesting and useful course that teach us some real techniques to apply in real business settings. As my major is Human Resources Management so I plan to work in the Human Resources field after graduation. This course really gives me a better understanding about recruitment and selection skills.
What is the most important thing that you learned in this class?
I think the most important thing that I have learned in this class is designing recruitment advertisements and evaluating recruitment strategies. In my opinion, creating an eye-catching recruitment advertisement is important as it determined how much candidates can we receive from different places such as websites or job fairs. After I have graduated from university, I can apply the knowledge from this topic to my future job in order to design a nearly perfect job advertisement to attract more candidates to apply my company. When the interviewer asks how can I add value to this company then I can provide these knowledge and skills to him or her in order to increase my competitive advantage.
As a company needs to recruit the best and talented employee to increase the company’s profit so an effective job advertisement is important to receive a pool of candidates and we can choose from the pool and select the most suitable person to onboard. It is important to give a brief job description and salary information and background information of the company. Also, I have learnt to avoid information that is “too good to be true”. After posting recruitment advertisements then it is important to select candidates carefully and preciously. We cannot use a huge amount of money to hire a unsatisfied candidate so we can use different strategies that we have learnt in this week to select the best candidate.
