Recruiting new staff from external sources will be influenced by several factors, namely :
When the economic conditions are relatively difficult, there will usually be an oversupply, or the number of applicants will much higher than the demand. In such a case, the company will find it relatively easier to select new employees from the large number of applicants.
It will tend to be easier for a company to find and recruit the best people if the company has a good reputation, therefore the best fresh graduates will flock to apply to the company. Example : Google, McKinsey or Microsoft.
