e-recruiting

E-recruitment, also known as online recruitment, is the practice of using technology and in particular Web-based resources for tasks involved with finding, attracting, assessing, interviewing and hiring new personnel.

The purpose of e-recruitment is to make the processes involved more efficient and effective, as well as less expensive. Online recruitment can reach a larger pool of potential employees and facilitate the selection process.

The online promotion of an organization as a desirable place to work, through the corporate website or other venues, is one element of e-recruitment. E-recruitment software and systems are available as standalone applications, product suites and services. A recruitment management system is an integrated product suite or portal that streamlines and automates the processes involved.

The use of websites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter for some aspects of recruitment is sometimes referred to as social recruiting.
