Editor's Notes

  1. Be careful of civil rights violations. In many states, it is illegal to discriminate in hiring practices based on a person’s marital status. Many organizations have nepotism policies, so find out where your employer stands on the issue. When hiring relatives, most employers require family members to work in different areas to prevent issues of favoritism and possible morale problems among other employees. It is never appropriate for family members to be in supervisory positions where they are required to manage their own relatives.
  2. Job posting is the process of announcing job openings to all employees. Some organizations have developed computerized versions of job announcements that are sent out as e-mails to all employees and some publish employment newsletters or flyers. The announcement should contain information about the position, the required qualifications and instructions for applying.
  3. Private agencies and executive search firms are most commonly used to recruit white-collar employees, however they can be used for virtually any type of position. Using job criteria provided by your organization, an agency will generate the applicant pool and do the preliminary interviews, thereby screening out unqualified candidates and sending to you only those who are actually qualified for the position. Large organizations often have in-house recruiters whose sole focus is to generate qualified candidates for open positions. Recruiters are generally used in high-tech industries and they focus their efforts on technical schools, community colleges and universities. You may choose to advertise the open position in local newspapers, trade journals, radio and television. Advertising can range from a simple help wanted ad in the classifieds to an extensive multimedia campaign. Traditionally, local newspaper advertising has been the common method of recruitment, particularly for entry-level positions, as it is low cost and can generate a good number of applicants. An internship is a special form of recruitment where a student is placed temporarily in a position with no obligation by either the student or the organization to make this a permanent position. The internship may be a summer or part-time job while the student is in school, enabling the student to learn the organization and try out the job before settling into a career. It also enables the organization to try out a possible future employee before making a job offer. Depending on the nature of the job you are hiring for, you may also get some unsolicited, walk-in applicants.
  4. Many organizations recognize the inherent advantage of a diverse workforce. Diverse employees bring increased creativity to the organization and the ability to help the firm expand into global markets. Employers who wish to develop a diverse workforce must ensure the use of recruiting methods that generate applications from a variety of individuals. It is important that recruiters receive training in the use of objective standards, as these individuals occupy a unique position in terms of encouraging or discouraging diverse individuals to apply for positions with the organization. Recruitment flyers can include pictures of minority and disabled employees, advertisements can be bi-lingual and interviews can be conducted using translators if appropriate.
  5. Screening interviews are usually conducted by telephone. The interviewer asks a few straight-forward questions to further determine the candidate’s job qualifications and appropriateness for the open position. If it is determined that the applicant is not appropriate for the position in question, the interviewer can steer them to another open position within the organization if there is something available that matches the applicant’s skills. If there is nothing else available and the candidate is obviously unqualified for the position, the process ends there, thereby saving both the candidate and the organization the time and expense of going further into the selection process.
  6. Selection Test:Selection tests are used to identify applicant skills that cannot be determined in an interview process. Using a variety of testing methods, applicants are rated on aptitude, personality, abilities, honesty and motivation. Tests are generally administered and evaluated before interviewing candidates. Testing applicants has two major advantages: test results are objective and free from personal bias and test results are usually expressed numerically so they can be validated by statistical analysis. Employers often use tests to determine the applicant’s knowledge level or proficiency in required job skills. Standardization : The processes used to test applicants must be as identical as possible. The content of a test, the instructions and the time allowed must be the same for all candidates. Reliability: A test’s reliability should be questioned if it does not generate consistent results each time it is administered. For example, if a person scores 125 on an intelligence test one week and only 80 on the same test the following week, we should assume that the testing instrument was not reliable. Validity: The skills tested in a selection instrument should be the same skills used on the job. Therefore, we can assume that higher test scores would correlate to higher success in job performance.
  7. In the past, the supervisor may have been the only person interviewing a candidate but now most organizations use an interview team consisting of representatives from the various areas of the organization. Multiple interviewers represent broader areas of interest and when interviewing is completed, there is more than one person to make the selection decision. The downside to team interviews is that the larger the team, the more difficult it will be to find a time and a place in everyone’s schedule to make the interview happen. In addition, candidates are likely to find a panel interview more stressful than an interview by a single person. In a structured or patterned interview, the interviewer follows a pre-set list of questions that are asked of all candidates. This allows for consistency in the process, ensures that important questions are not left out and helps guarantee that all candidates are assessed by the same standards.The nondirective interview is conducted with a minimum of questions asked by the interviewer and questions are not always planned in advance. This technique involves open-ended questions such as “tell me about the work you do in your field,” allowing the candidate to express his or her thoughts and feelings that might be relevant to the job and allowing the interviewer to follow the direction set by the candidate.Situational interviewing is characterized by questions like, “what would you do in this situation?” allowing the candidate to speculate on how they would handle a particular job problem. Behavioral interviewing asks the candidate to “describe what you did in a particular situation?” It requires the candidate to give real examples of past actions and results and it is based on the theory that past behavior is a good predictor of future behavior. Generally, behavioral questions are more likely to give real-world information that may be relevant in making a good selection decision.
  8. According to ADP Screening and Selection Services, 40 percent of applicants lie about their work histories and educational backgrounds and about 20 percent present false credentials and licenses. Nationwide, an estimated 30 percent of job applicants make material misrepresentations on their resumes (P. Babcock, “Spotting Lies,” HRMagazine; October 2003). Another survey found that 95 percent of college students said they would lie to get a job and 41 percent said that they had already done so. One survey of top executives found that 15 percent admitted falsifying resume information. (“Avoiding Truth or Dare in Reference Checks.” HR Focus; May 2000).
  9. Difficult as it may be to check references, you must get accurate information on your prospective new hire. Unfortunately, past employers are becoming increasingly reluctant to give references, mostly because they fear defamation lawsuits from disgruntled former employees. Consequently many employers strictly limit the information they provide about former employees. It’s a no-win situation for employers because they can be sued either way. Withholding negative information regarding former employees may protect the previous employer from a defamation lawsuit but it increases their exposure to a lawsuit based on negligence if they withhold information regarding the volatility of a former employee.

A past employer who fails to warn about an employee’s known propensity to violence may be guilty of negligent referral and a potential employer who fails to do proper reference checks whereby they may have uncovered the potential risk of a new employee, may be guilty of negligent hiring if the new employee causes injury to another in the workplace.

If your organization requires a physical examination or a drug screen, arrangements should be made for completing the process. If the candidate needs time to think over the job offer, a time should be established for notification. At this point you need to ensure that your potential new hire receives a realistic job preview. Tell him or her everything they need to know about the job; the bad as well as the good. Avoid quoting an annual salary. Quote compensation by the hour or the month, whichever is appropriate. Annual salary quotes have sometimes been interpreted by the courts as a contract for employment for a minimum of one year. If the employee is let go before the completion of that first year, you are looking at a potential lawsuit.The Immigration Reform and Control Act requires employers to hire only American citizens and aliens who are legally authorized to work in the United States. Eligibility for employment must be verified for all new hires within three days after he or she starts work. Both the employee and the employer must complete and sign the I-9 form with the employee presenting the necessary documents to verify identity and legal right to work in the United States. The form indicates which documents have been presented and the employer’s signature verifies that the documents appear to be genuine. The I-9 form must be retained by the employer for at least three years.
