    Merits of internal recruitment are that the organization will be more familiar with the motivation and work habits of the candidate,and it provides motivation to employees,since internal promotion do occur. Merits of external recruitment include:

    i) candidates may he recently educated or trained and therefore have up-to-dare skills and knowledge.

    ii) candidates might be more likely to be interested in and open to change and innovation.

    iii) an organization can strengthen its own organization, and weaken one’s competitors at the same time.

    Strategies related to high level of competition would be best supported by internal recruitment,since losing employee’s knowledge could hurt the organization. There would likely be evidence internally if employees were committed to the organization. Strategies that require constant change and innovation would be better served by external recruitment.
