Written By :
To hire new employees, you need to be fully aware of the recruitment cycle that consists of several elements which are (evaluation, sourcing, screening, selecting, and onboarding). So, in the following few lines, Talents Hunters will tackle these elements in a simple way.
- Evaluation/Job Analysis:
In this step, the recruiter should create a job description that fits the required position and consists of the required skills, the qualifications, the required experience, and maybe a pay scale range. So, after finishing this job description, the recruiter advertises it on different job portals, newspaper, and other communication channels.
Sourcing the candidates is an important step as it leads the recruiter to generate a pool of potential candidates using several methods. So, he should firstly announce and advertise the job via posting on several job portals, websites, and even newspapers. This means that the whole idea of sourcing is to reach the maximum number of active and passive candidates.
Now and after the sourcing, the recruiter should have a sufficient pool of candidates, so this step is about screening them to choose the appropriate pool of candidates and for screening them there are different ways to be followed and the most common way is to analyze the resume. However, there is another way of screening that can be through short telephone interviews.
After screening and choosing the appropriate pool of candidates here comes the selection step. So, selecting the suitable candidate usually made by different types of interviews such are: panel interview, technical interview, or maybe an exam-based-interview.
Also, it should be mentioned that choosing that candidate is mainly based on his expertise, personality, and salary negotiations.
Onboarding is the final step in the recruitment cycle and the main idea of it is to make the new candidate qualified for working in the organization via providing him with a good orientation and training.
All the previous elements combine together to form the recruitment cycle that almost all organizations follow to get a new candidate. So, stay tuned to Talents Hunters for more interesting posts.
