(a) The recruitment method that i prefer to use is as follows:
• Hire the right attitude and train them for skills: Employees with right attitude are valuable employees for
the organization. The attitude of a person reflects in their behavior. Being a smart recruiter i always look for atttitude over skills as skills can be gained but not the attitude. We provide proper training to explain the process and to develop skills in the new hires.
(b) Type of interview that would work best when hiring someone in an entrepreneurial environment
• Panel Interview: There are multiple managers and executives gathers in a group to interview one
candidate. It helps to speed up the hiring process. Instead of coming back for several rounds of interview, candidate can face all rounds at one place with the panel which has become more convenient.
(c) I would like to use the selection tests because of the following reasons:
• Selection tests helps to estimate about candidate’s knowledge, proficiency and ability. • It also provides guidelines for reference evaluation. • It helps in avoiding biasness during selection procedure.
