  1. What is selection?
    • A process of choosing the most suitable candidates from candidates for the
    • various job vacancies in the organisation. It seeks to ensure which candidates
    • will be successful if hired. Thus, selection is an exercise in prediction.
  2. What are the difference between selection and recruitment?
    1.  Recruitment technically precedes Selection. Selection follows recruitment. 

     

    • 2.   Recruitment refers to the process of
    • identifying and encouraging potential candidates to apply for jobs in the
    • organisation. Selection involves choosing the best out of those recruited.

     

    • 3.   Recruitment is positive as it aims at
    • increasing the number of job seekers (applications) for wider choice or
    • increasing the selection ratio. Selection, on the other hand, is said to be
    • negative in its application inasmuch as it rejects a large number of unqualified candidates in order to identify those who are suitable for the
    • jobs.

     

    4. In sum, recruitment involves searching. Selection involves comparing those already searched.
  3. What are the four possible results from a scientific selection method?
    1. False Negative (Error) - refers to those who were rejected but who would have been successful had they been selected.

    • 2. False Positive (Error) - those
    • who are selected and who subsequently perform poorly on the job.

    3. True Positive

    • 4. False
