Selection and Induction Process
Stages of the Human Resource Planning Process
vacancy: HR make the decision if the recruitment is necessary or not, to make
the decision HR will follow the personal planning stages.
of the job: You can’t find what you need if you don’t know what you need. HR
will analysis the job to decide what type of workforce you looking for. HR will
look the position and decide which skills and qualification the candidate must
have to meet with the company needs.
a job description: HR will prepare a job description which will state the scope and general purpose of the job, main
duties, control and general responsibilities .
a personnel specification: HR put together what skills, qualification,
experience and knowledge the new employee should have to perform the job
Attract applications: HR will prepare a job
advertisement to attract people. There is plenty way to display it, example on
internet, newspaper , television, notice board etc.
application: HR will process all the applications. They will look all the
received applicants and searching for the best matching for the job.
a shortlist: HR will create a shortlist from all the applicants, reduce down
the numbers and narrow down to find the best applicant for the job.
The HR will invite people for interview.
a decision: After the HR interviewed the candidates will make the decision, who
get the job.
filled: If the candidate accept the job than the vacancy is filled.
the HR set the job description and the personnel specification have to decide
where they supply the new work force. When the HR forecasting consider two
things, what are they looking for and
where will be recruit from? When we talking about supply the HR looking the
existing staff level and predicting what is likely to happen over a period of
time. Example staff leave, retire or be promoted. Supply could be internally or
externally. Internally the HR look at what staff we already have and look they personal
files to try to find someone in-house to fill up the job position. Personal
files is important because it can shows hiding skills and experiences. HR are
always try to first find a right candidate from the existing staff, also they looking at if they can
train, promote or transfer somebody. If the HR can’t find the candidate
in-house then they start to look external. They continue the recruitment
process with place a job advert outside of the company and running the process
till they don’t find the best suitable new staff.

Interview selection methods
is very stressful for both parties. Knowing different selection of methods can
help you to make more comfortable for interviewer and for the job seeker as
well. Different job role might need different selection methods to find the
right candidate. Choosing the right methods is crucial if we want to find the
most suitable person for the job.
Telephone, Computer, Video, One-on-One, Serial, Panel, Group, Stress and
Meandering Interview etc.
All of them
have advantages and disadvantages but for this position I would choose the one-on-one interview. I think that type would be the most accurate to find the
right candidate for the receptionist position.
This is the
most common interviewing style. Very accurate and efficient because the
interview is based on test and conversation and the end both side have opinion.
The interviewer have opinion about the candidate and the candidate have opinion
of the job. The test is starting when the two part meet each other. The first
impression is very important in that situation. Many things can affect what
impression come trough at the first moment. Example the body language is very
important not just the beginning but also when during the interview. Also
important what you wearing at the interview. If somebody show up dress smartly
and with polished shoes it shows the candidate care about the job and did an
effort and time to prepare for the interview, If somebody show up with dirty
shoes, not dressing properly for the occasion
obviously shows the candidate not really care and couldn’t be bored to
make an effort. That can cause bad impression and the candidate can lose a
chance to be successful on the race to get a job.
will be place in the room or some quite part of the hotel, where the
interviewer will place question to the candidate. The questions will be about
the candidate previous experiences, personnel qualities, personnel interest,
future career plans, likes and dislikes. General questions will analyze the
applier problem solving skills and the ability to socialize with the rest of
the team. The interviewer will decide based on this answers if the candidate
right for that job or not. One-on-one interviews usually last approximately
20-40 min. The hiring manager try to follow the 80/20 rule which means he/her
talk the 20 percent and the rest of 80 percent the candidate. The manager lead
the discussion by asking questions. Experienced job interviewer like to use
open ended questions which help to the candidate open up and talk about their
skills, experiences, strength, weaknesses and qualifications.
Question like “Tell me about yourself?” “What are your strengths and weaknesses ?” etc.
advantage of the the one-on-one interviews is the employer have a very accurate
picture if the candidate personality, skills, strengths, weaknesses so is make
easier to decide if is the right person for the position or not.
disadvantages is hard to treat each one to one interviews with the same
attention and treat them on the same way. Also could be a problem the candidate
tell each other what question they had, so the next one could be prepare the

around writing job adverts, mostly based around best practice to attract
candidates, but certain rules are for to ensure you don’t fall foul of

words and phrases which you can’t use in a job advertisement. You must state or
imply in a job advert that you will discriminate against anyone. You can’t say

who will get the position. Example if we have two candidates with the same
knowledge and skills but one is have disabilities, we can’t choose the person
