Introduction

D1 Hannah Jackson To begin with, I'm going to evaluate the effectiveness of the documents which I used in my recruitment process. I'm going to discuss how the documents contribute overall to the organisation, management and conduct of the interview and the process of making a selection decision. I'm going to talk about each document and describe how it is an advantage or disadvantage to use that specific document when recruiting an new employee. I'm also going to talk about the problems that could be caused without having the documents during the recruitment process and the importance of them. At first I had to consider the type of documents that were required when recruiting a new employee for McDonalds. I had to make a variety of documents that would all help to get the ideal shift manager to work at McDonalds. This is why I had to ensure I did my best when creating the five different documents. I'm going to write about each document and the advantage and disadvantage of each one of them.

CV/ Cover letter When recruiting an new employee it's important that you receive a CV and cover letter from them to find out their specific qualification and what previous jobs the have had, if they have completed any awards and their current skills. For the job role of the shift manager it was specifically requested what was expected of them, therefore on the CV's and cover letters being handed in they should have all consisted of the expectations before receiving an interview. Advantages The advantage of a CV/ cover letters are that they help the recruiter to some up applicants and choose between people from what they have written about themselves on their CV. disadvantage There are also disadvantages of CV's / cover letters are, if someone perhaps didn't write as much as they could have or is not very good in getting their personal attributes and skills across to people, they could miss out to someone who is good at writing about themselves, and is better at big words therefore it hard to make the decision when choosing an interviewee Personal specification A person specification describes the requirements a job holder needs to perform the job. ...read more.

Conclusion

It could also result in not having contact details to invite an applicant to an interview. Another documents that would cause an effect is by not using the job description correctly, this is one of the first documents to be sent out to be read by the public therefore it need to consist of everything they need to know down to the specific hours, they skills required, the qualifications and their job role, if this wasn't filled in correctly then an applicant may be unaware what time of job the are walking into. Finally if interview questions were not done before the interview, the interview would be a lot in formal due to the interviewer having to think of questions of their head to ask, and not being able to get specific answers, to what they really need, it also means that each interviewee may be asked different questions not making it fair. To conclude, as you can see from the information I have provided above it is so important to plan ahead before recruiting an employee. You need to ensure you are making the correct documents with the information that is required for the applicant to know. I feel as though the documents I used have been beneficial and without them there could have been a huge problem when trying to find a correct employee to work for McDonalds. ...read more.
