Language: English

Short Description: Selection is the process of gathering information about job applicants to decide which one should be offered the job. The first selection devices that let job applicants interact with hiring managers are the application form and résumés. Many companies use the information in these documents to conduct background screenings and reference checks to identify the best applicants. Several different types of selection tests are also used to further identify the top candidates for a job. Finally, the top candidates go through an interview process before the final candidate is offered the position.

After executing a successful recruitment strategy, hiring managers are faced with the daunting task of identifying which of the many applicants is right for the job. Mangers do this by thoroughly investigating the applicants. This course discusses how application data, background screenings, selecting tests, and interviews help manager hire the right person for a job.
