External sources of recruitment are the answer to such situation. ) advertisement It is the most effective means to search potential employees from outside the organisation. Employment advertisement in newspapers, journals, bulletins etc. is quite common in country. By means of advertisement, the organisation is able to communicate is requirement of people. Personal consultants They undertake the work of personal and behalf of the employees. The consultants are very helpful in procuring top and middle level executives. They are many consultancy and employment agencies like ABC consultants, AF Ferguson and company, personal and productivity services etc. ) Jobbers and contract The jobbers and contractions keep themselves in touch with in large number of workers and bring them at the places where there are required. c) Factory at gate The concept of gate hiring is to select people who approach on their own for employment in the organization. This happens mostly in case of skilled and semi-skilled workers. It is quite useful and convenient method at the initial stage of the organization. d) University or college The source is quite useful for selecting people to managerial posts, trainees, technical supervisor and scientists. e) walk-in List
Most employers maintain a database with details of applications received from casual applicants as well as applicants who were not considered earlier. f) employment exchanges There is a network of employment exchanges in the country which is run by the government. It is an important source of recruitment. The names of these persons will be supplied to business concerns on the basis of their requisition. g) Recommendation of the present employees The present employee who knows the organization and the job is required to recommend a person closely known to him for consideration of appointment.
This ensures reliability and suitability for the post. h) Labour union They are asked to make recommendations for employment of people as a matter of goodwill and co-operation.

CHAPTER 4 DATA ANALYSIS For collecting the various information we interview the SIMCO manager Mr.
KM Parameswaran, he explained us everything about the recruitment and selection process used there. Management of SIMCO Kulappully is very careful in the process of recruitment and selection. They need most of the internal and external sources of recruitment and selection steps. In case of internal sources the company followed Promotion and Transfer. Transfer defines shifting of employee from one place to another without any major changes. But promotion shows shifting of employees to higher positions. Advantages for using internal source. • expenditure and time for recruitment can be reduced • Cost for orientation and training are low Good relation with trade unions can maintained • It encourages the employees to work hard. The SIMCO depends on external sources of recruitment also. Because the internal source only is not an easy way to fill the vacancies in the company. They are Advertisement, recommendations of present employees and employment exchanges. The SIMCO is not adopting the modern methods of recruitment like E-recruiting and campus selection. Advantages for using external source • People with required skill, education etc. can be obtained • It helps to bring new ideas in the organisation • Best selection can be meat with the desirable qualification.
The next step after recruitment is selection. It is the process of picking the right candidate from the pool of application through selection they collect relevant information about the applicants collected by a series of step. They use screening of application forms, selection tests, and interviews, checking references and orientation and placement. CHAPTER 5 CONCLUSION As the past of business management project we visited SIMCO company manager Mr. KM parameswaran. He explained the recruitment and selection process following by them while doing this project we got a practical idea about the topic ‘recruitment and selection of personnel ‘.
We can understand that every organisation cannot follow all the rules and regulations related to recruitment and selection in their practical sense. The SIMCO kulappully is using various selected internal and external sources of recruitment and selection. Both recruitment and selection are very important to every firm. But we understood that selection is easier than compared to recruitment. SUGESSIONS ? Company should follow all the steps in the selection procedure. ?
