This paper first explains that the very essential traditional methods of employee recruitment are protracted processes; therefore, organizations are giving top priority to the online computerization of this human resource (HR) management function. Next, the author examines the literature to determine that, although there are some disadvantages as compared to the personal interview , the use of the Internet benefits both the company and the potential employees seeking work. The paper underscores the importance of the IT department integrating their technology into the existing HR practices and of the HR leadership managing this change.

Literature Review

From the Paper:

"The advantage of implementing online recruitment is also the wide geographical reach, as mentioned before. This allows international businesses to conduct the recruitment process that much faster. However an organization which had previously been conducting the process through traditional channels will have undertaken a major project of managing change in migrating to the online technology. This is defined as a techno-structural intervention. This requires a considerable level of financial investment which unless aligned to the strategic focus of the company will have been made for nothing."
