Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews the history of peer-reviewed research on employee recruitment over the past four decades. Each of these decades can be characterized as focusing primarily on a limited, but somewhat different, set of independent (e.g., recruiters, recruitment sources, recruitment realism) and dependent variables (applicant attitudes, behavioral intentions and choices, organizational recruitment outcomes). Although methodological advances have been made and a body of knowledge accumulated, the vast majority of recruitment research has focused on a small portion of the labor market (new college graduates) and continues to study attitudes and behavioral intentions more than actual behaviors.

Keywords: recruitment, recruiting, organizational attraction, job choice, person-organization fit, employment branding
