This task requires students to investigate the techniques used by recruiters and employers to select staff in order to make recommendations for strategies students could use in their job seeking activities. Recruitment has gone well beyond application letter/resume so students need to be familiar with some of the different ways in which employers will assess them. The recruitment techniques you choose to investigate may include behavioural interviewing, psychological testing, group interviewing, internships, use of Linkedin, video interviewing and use of mobile platforms in recruitment, online profiles vs resumes, cadetships and internships, networking and the importance of breadth of experience in demonstrating skills. Students will need to limit their discussion to one or two techniques. Your report, written in plain English, should be a formal document which outlines the recruitment strategy and could include current trends, examples (if relevant), any challenges or issues (if relevant), strategies for applicants. The format of your report should include: cover letter (letter of transmittal) cover page table of contents executive summary introduction discussion summary and conclusions recommendations See report topic for guidance and a model report with the format to follow. Marks will be awarded for the comprehensiveness of your research, your awareness of the contemporary business environment and your audience (jobseekers), and report format and structure. See the rubric for detail. Your report should be 1000 words long. Include a word count at the end of your Recommendations section. Do not include your letter of transmittal, cover page, executive summary, table of contents, references or appendices in your word count.
