The study indicates various techniques used by the two companies, that is, Kudos Chemical Limited, that is a manufacturing company and Virasat-e-Khalsa which belongs to the services sector. The study made under observation comprises of the services and guidance of a recruitment agency called Jobachievers, that is functioning from its office at Chandigarh, to provide job opportunities to the dserving candidates, in mostly areas in Punjab.
Index Terms: Recruitment, Selection
The two companies undertaken in the project study comprises of a manufacturing firm named KUDOS CHEMICAL LIMITED and a servicing unit named VIRASAT-E-KHALSA. The former is having a chemical base and is in the business of manufacturing “caffeine”.
The latter is a service unit, having the structure of a theme museum, in which the culture of Punjab has been depicted in a versatile manner. Both of the companies need an adequate base of employees, who can carry out the various functions int the firms. Due to the different nature of the working aspects of these two firms, the recruitment and the selection process of both the firms are entirely different.
The only area in which the recruitment process of these two firms concides is that both the firms seeks out the help of recruitment agencies to find the appropriate and deserving candidates for their firms. The project report, hereby, includes my work at such a recruitment agency named “JOBACHIEVERS” under which I studied the recruitment and selection processes of various firms and prepared my project report on the comparison between the recruitment and selection process of a manufacturing firm and a service firm.
The process of recruitment begins with the sending of the “Job description” by the company. The job description is comprising of the following requirements:
1) Position vacant
This very first point, clarifies to the recruiter, for which required position, the candidate is needed. The recruiter then make use of the data that is available to him, or creates new data of the candidates. Since I undergone the training in a job consultancy, there was pre-recorded data already available. Thus, the recruiter can contact the person and can make him attend the scheduled interview for the required post.
2) Examining the Job description
The Job description provided by the company tells the recruiter, the complete insight of the position vacant and also provides the knowledge of what the company is seeking in the required candidate. Understanding the complete JD (Job description) only can help the recruiter to move to the next step. If the recruiter fails to understand the need of the company from the JD provided, then all of the steps undertaken by the recruiter would turn out to be a failure.
