The goal of recruitment is to generate a pool of
qualified candidates. More specifically, recruitment refers to the range of
processes an organization uses to attract qualified individuals. When
considering recruitment strategies, there are some initial questions that
should be explored:
1. Should we recruit internally or externally?
2. Should we consider alternative approaches to filling jobs
(i.e. contract staff)?
3. Should we look for fully qualified candidates, or look
for the best fit who we would have to devote time, money, and energy to
