Internal Recruitment Advantages:
Benefits:

o Increasing commitment and performance
o Decreasing turnover
- More accurate assessment of employee ability
- Less orientation needed (lower costs of training and recruitment)
Drawbacks:

- Time consuming if one is already preferred (manager already knows who
he wants to fill the position)
- Dissatisfaction with insider as new boss. (People have to get used to a new
relationship or new role the person is playing)
- “Inbreeding” Good to have fresh new ideas from outside instead of familiar
people from the inside.
- Methods: Job posting, (intranet), HR records and skills inventories.
External Recruitment Advantages:
Benefits:
- Larger, more diverse pool
- Assists in EE goals
- Acquisition of new skills/reduced need for training

skills that are very specific)

preserved)
