Week 8 Discussion
After a group of potential applicants has advanced through the recruitment and screening process, the human resource manager must select the best applicant from a group of finalists. Selection techniques such as cognitive ability tests, personality inventories, experience ratings, and interviews can assist managers working in non-profit and government organizations.
For this Discussion, review this week’s Resources. Review Chapter 6 of Human Resources Management for Public and Nonprofit Organizations. Focus on the selection tools used to hire qualified applicants. Review the article by Llorens and the Exercise 6.2, “Barring Discrimination against Unemployed Applicants” in the course text (page 207).
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 your response to either question 1 or question 2 of Exercise 6.2, “Barring Discrimination against Unemployed Applicants” in the course text (page 207). Justify your response based upon the readings and what you have experienced in your government or non-profit organization.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the resources.
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.
