You could also find candidates externally through schools, colleges and universities, job centres, employment agencies, recruitment consultants, advertisements in newspapers and professional journals. The advantage of finding candidates externally is that you have a wider range of applicants, there may be more suitable applicants and candidates may contribute new ideas to the organisation.

The next step is short listing. When applications have been received such as paper based curriculum vitae, application forms and online curriculum vitae and application forms.
