The logic behind employee selection methods is to weed out the best candidate that is best suitable for the job or position that the company is hiring for. If successful with the selection method chosen, the organization or company would end up with the most efficient and effective candidate to get the job done.
The selection process all depends on the type of organization or the type of position being interviewed for. The most typical first step is to review of applications and resumes from employee to evaluate which of the prospects have the closest skills outlined for the job or position requirements. The application is also used to collect basic initial information about a prospect for the company. For example, the company can sometimes get home address, contact information including phone numbers and email addresses and sometimes in rare occasion, can get social security information from resumes.
The next step after the evaluation of resumes or applications is the interview process. The interview itself can be conducted in multiple different ways. The interview can be conducted via face to face interaction, video interaction like Skype for example, or it could be a non-video but instead a pure phone call interview. Usually employers always prefer a face to face interview.
After the interview process comes the selection process which the employers use the combination of the application and more in depth questions during the actual interview itself.
