Chapter 1: Introduction

In this modern day, working is one of the certain needs for living. Imagine if someone is not working, they cannot eat, pay the bills, pay their child school tuition, etc. For working, there are some steps that have to pass before working in some place. The steps is called RECRUITMENT and SELECTION.

Recruitment and selection are the important things to build a good workforce in the working environment of the company. According to the answers.com, recruitment is an Act of seeking prospective new employees or members for an organization. Recruitment is a vital function for an organization to maintain its personnel.

Based on the writer experience, the main cause of failed recruitment or selection process is the lack of good communication skills.
