Pocketbook cover

by Stewart Wright and John Sponton

The Managing Recruitment Pocketbook explains how to plan recruitment, attract the right candidates, assess CVs and application forms, get the most out of the interview, use different methods of selection and how to make the job offer. Under 'attracting the right candidates', the pocketbook looks at advertising methods, using the internet, employing recruitment agencies and recruiting internally. Selection methods addressed include psychometric tests, personality questionnaires, assessment centres, presentations and work sample exercises. The final chapter covers how to pull all the selection information together, references, medicals, handling unsuccessful candidates and making the eventual offer.
