Conclusion

To get a good work which would get a good earning it does take a good detailed structure like the strengths, past experience, last type of work and whether it was similar to the type now.

Thirdly it is decided whether the applicant should be given the job and that he will be capable of doing it. An organisation's most valuable resource is its workforce, the people who work for it. Managers therefore need to give careful thought to the needs of employers.
