According to recruiter, �It is very important to employ the right people to each position within an organization. Without the correct skill set and/or attitude, an employee can quickly inflict damage upon a company’s turnover, reputation, or both.� (Recruiter, 2015). As the district manager, my recruiting strategy would be interviewing those individuals who have the drive, willingness, personality, and public interaction as these are the main components of a successful individual and Apple needs more individuals like this. Not only to be successful for the company but also to be successful to themselves and their families.
When you recruit an individual, you are thinking of their skills and their reactions to how they act in the public�s eyes in order to find out if they are good enough to recruit and if they have the personality it takes to be recruited and to accomplish what is being hoped to accomplish in the place of business. Selecting an individual is the hard part of the recruiting and selection as some people can be upset and disappointed if they are not chosen or recruited however, it is not intended to be a reflection of what the district manager thinks of them. There are only so many individuals a place of business can hire or recruit.
