Every organization must be able to attract a sufficient number of the job candidates who have the abilities and aptitudes needed to help the organization to achieve its objectives. Ultimately without the recruitment, there is scope for selection process. All the candidates who are invited in the recruitment, may not be selected because candidates have to go through selection process to prove their talent. Basic contents of Recruitment notification; It contains brief about an organisation which is recruiting. Contains number of posts/jobs lying vacant in an organisation.
