- Recruitment is a process of finding and hiring the best-qualified candidate (from within or outside of an organization) for a job opening, in a timely and cost effective manner. The recruitment process includes analyzing the requirements of a job, attracting employees to that job, screening and selecting applicants, hiring, and integrating the new employee to the company.
- The selection process refers to the steps involved in choosing people who have the right qualifications to fill a current or future job opening. Employee selection can range from a very simple process to a very complicated process depending on the company and the position. Certain employment laws such as anti-discrimination laws must be obeyed during employee selection.
