Abstract and Keywords

Because the way an organization recruits can influence the type of employees it hires, how they perform, and their retention rate, the topic of employee recruitment has attracted considerable attention. In this chapter, I provide a selective review of research that has addressed topics such as recruitment targeting, recruitment methods, the timing of recruitment actions, the wording of the recruitment message, recruiters, the organizational site visit, and the job offer. These and other topics are discussed in terms of their potential impact on both prehire (e.g., the quality of job applicants) and posthire (e.g., new employee retention) outcomes. In addition, I have highlighted future directions for research.

Keywords: employee recruitment, applicant attraction, recruitment methods, employee referral, web site, college recruiting, recruiters, social networking
