  3. 3. Importance of recruiting  Recruiting is a very important process because the more applicants you have the more selective you can be in your hiring.  From this perspective, it is crucial to pay attention to how an organization’s image is influenced by recruitment and selection processes.
  4. 4.

Ad’s construction: A four-point guide has been proposed to construct advertisements.
  7. 7. A four-point guide for Ad’s construction  Attention: you must attract attention by adding visual effects and highlighting important points.  Interest: describe the nature of the job by highlighting important aspects of job from candidates’ points of view such as its location, salary, and interesting aspects of job.  Desire: create desire by amplifying the job’s interest factors such as career development, travel, or similar advantages.  Action: the ad should prompt action and invite people for next phases of recruiting process.

  10. 10. Employment agencies  Some reasons when employment agencies may be useful: - your company doesn’t have its own HR department; - it is difficult to generate a pool of qualified applicants; - some positions must be filled quickly.
  11. 11. A sample list of Iranian employment agencies http://www.irantalent.com/
  12. 12. Social network (networking)  A study carried out in the UK by Capital Consulting shows has found that fewer than one in five (18 per cent) of employees work in organizations which encourage them to recommend friends or acquaintances.
  13. 13. Pros & Cons  Some argue that the candidates who come through referrals have already been examined by an employee, they are usually a better fit with the company and the job and have a better understanding of the business.  With a ready-made network of workmates, they settle in quickly and tend to stay longer than employees who come to the business through external agencies. They are also more likely to perform well so as to not reflect badly on the one who recommended them.  Using social networking without an effective performance appraisal system may result in dysfunctional informal groups.
