Recruitment process flow

In a recruitment process, certain elements should be included, and it is evident that five components are usually the most important: Requirement profile, Job advertisement, Application process, Job interview, Reference checking. These five steps are meant to facilitate and assist companies in finding the right candidates for the positions that need to be filled. The content of each stage may vary, and the extent of each stage compared to others may also vary. If you utilize competency-based recruitment, it requires a specific type of preparation; certain specific jobs may require a background check, which becomes a mandatory step in the reference checking stage of a recruitment process, etc. The type of position to be filled can also affect the way the process itself may look. Therefore, these steps should be seen as a foundation to build upon when creating a recruitment process.
