Tanglewood Case 3
I will analyzed the information from the recruiting data and will prepare a report with the best recruiting strategy to fill up a job vacancy for a store associate at Tanglewood store. Also I will use the organizational data to determine the best methods for recruiting new staff. And finally I will develop various forms of recruitment messages to encourage individuals to apply for a new job position. “Recruitment is the process of attracting individuals on a timely basis, in sufficient numbers, and with appropriate qualifications, and encouraging them to apply for jobs with an organization.” (Mondy and Noe, 2005 page 221)
Development of a Recruitment Guide
First, I will develop a recruitment guide to inform about the new job position. This will contain all the requirements and everything the organization is looking for in a possible candidate. I will give as much detail to attract those people who are looking for a job. In this case I will use the exhibit 5.3 to create my recruitment guide and encourage those individuals. My encouragement will be enough to draw individuals to apply for a store associate at Tanglewood stores.
