2. Describe the best "targets" for your recruiting efforts by considering the job and organizational context. Evaluate the various methods of recruiting in terms of whether they seem more like "open" or "targeted" recruiting, using the information in the book to help you make this decision. If some methods seem more "targeted," whom do you think they target?
Traditional media advertising is an open recruiting method. Ads are placed in newspapers and journals, recorded and played on radio or TV and placed on the Internet as banners to attract a wide variety of job seekers.
Employee referral is an open and somewhat targeted recruiting method that is a valuable source for finding job applicants. Current Employees refer people that they know for consideration and this usually presents the company with a small pool of applicants that are a potentially better fit with the company. While this method is considered open recruiting it seems to target individuals that already have knowledge of the company's culture having been informed by the referring current employee.
In store kiosks are an open, alternative and interactive recruiting method that allows applicants the opportunity to complete the entire application process electronically and provide applicants with information about the company and automatic test results without the use of the Internet.
State job service agencies are a targeted recruitment method aimed at available low to mid-level applicants. Based on required qualifications the service helps with the initial screenings and hiring recommendations and tax incentives are tied to the hiring of these applicants. In order for this method to work the company will have to maintain a close relationship with the service and alert them when positions are filled so that resumes are not sent for closed positions.
The use of staffing agencies is an open recruiting method that provides a pool of semi-trained candidates that are usually hired as part of the core workforce by the company on a temp to permanent basis.
