Assessment and Selection

Assessment and Selection

Assessing candidates during the recruitment process involves understanding whether a candidate has the experience, talent, skills and values required to perform well in a particular job post.

It is the most essential part of the recruitment process as it allows you to select the right people for your job post.

Research shows that as often as 74% of the time the wrong person will be hired for the job post.

Our team's top tips for this module

"Assessment and Selection is one of the largest modules of this course. There is a lot to cover and the stakes are huge.

However, assessing and selecting candidates is the very core of recruitment and the great news is that there is a best practice way of doing it.

If it helps, come back to the module and review the different topics each time you need to assess candidates."

"There is nothing better in recruitment than delivering a great fitting candidate into your organisation.

There are many ways to assess people but it is really important that you select the methods that are appropriate for your job post.

You need to only be assessing candidates for your job posts criteria, nothing extra."
