Abstract

Strategic recruitment is of vital importance in recruitment planning now a day. We also found the usefulness of Generation X approach in identifying the differences between the old generation and the young new Generation x and the different needs and attitudes of both the generations. This gives us an idea that the old recruitment practices might not be enough in today’s competitive environment. The Rank and Yank approach shows just how intense the competition is in the corporate world today and the fact that this approach is so successful is astounding. Although the benefits of Internet recruiting exceed its drawbacks but even then we found that Internet recruiting is still more useful for computer related business sector. We would also conclude that despite all other recruitment testing methods Interviews still stand out as one of the best ways to identify and recruit the right person for your organization.
