The recruitment and selection process is important to an organisation's overall productivity. Effective methods produce the best possible candidates for a position, helping the company select the most efficient employee to assist in achieving objectives and goals. In the future, companies will use new and effective Web 2.0 recruitment methods to create a solid selection strategy.

Social Networking

An effective recruitment technique is using a social networking site for job candidate selection. Companies can set up an information page on popular networking websites that allow recruiting, and present information to potential employees about an open position. This ideal recruitment method reaches a large number of people who are registered with social networking websites, a community that's growing on a daily basis. Potential employees typically search online for a position before using other search methods, such as browsing newspaper want ads. This recruitment technique lets companies target their efforts to a specific demographic.

Virtual Job Fair

An effective recruitment and selection technique is a virtual job fair. Much like a traditional job fair, a virtual fair gathers several companies searching for new recruits together in one place, along with several possible employees to match potential employees and employers. A virtual job fair is hosted on a website and may include scheduled chats between potential employees and employers. Interested employment companies register for a booth (space) that showcases the company logo for the fair's duration. Other benefits of enrolling may include a virtual collection of all submitted resumes, unlimited job postings and a company profile page. This method is a cost-effective technique for recruitment.

Job Search Websites

The Internet provides several avenues for the selection and recruitment process. Many organisations save time and money by using job search websites as a recruitment source. This is an ideal method, because companies can post information about open positions at online job search websites, view candidate resumes and filter resumes by skills, experience and qualifications. Online recruitment through job search websites provides a recruiter continual access and automated selection, made easier with screening and filtering.
