Recruitment & Selection


  1. As a class, select 3-4 jobs that you would like to apply for in the future.  Split the class into 2 groups. Group 1 will be 2/3 of the class. Group 1 will split into a group for each job and will become the interviewers. There will be 2-4 students asking questions. Group 2 will be the interviewees and answer questions. Once completed discuss as a class the advantages and disadvantages of interviews. How effective are interviews in determining the best person for the job? I recommend taking 1 period to prepare and 1 period for conducting interviews.
