Finding and selecting the best people for your organization is still the most important HR intervention. In many organizations the HR practices in recruitment and selection are still of the Stone Age. Someone has found a new job or gets an internal promotion. HR writes a job profile, full with required skills and competencies. The job is posted and candidates apply. HR waits a couple of weeks until there is a good batch. A long list is made, and five candidates are invited for interviews. After a couple of interview rounds, and maybe some assessment or tests, the final candidate is offered the job. She has a notice period of three months, and starts six to nine months after the vacancy appeared. What are some of the current trends in the area of recruitment and selection?
No matter what business you run, you can’t afford to hire the wrong person.
Technology has hit the job seeking process. Before you analyze a resume, it usually passes through a scan you have developed, looking for specific keywords that relate to your position opening.
We have started using technology more than ever in an attempt to increase the effectiveness of our strategies and the productivity of our businesses. Digital solutions, software tools, and tech gimmicks, in general, allow us to boost our communication, track our performance, and make changes as we move forward with our business decisions.

In today’s world, it is harder than ever to attract high quality job candidates. Companies of all sizes are competing against each other trying to hire the best engineers, developers, sales force, marketers, and support teams. A majority of the modern day recruitment processes use pre-employment skill testing as an integral part of their hiring strategy. However, the catch here is getting candidates to give their assessments. Candidates, especially millennial find it too taxing to give an assessment test. The same is true for lateral hiring.
