Internal recruitment is focused on hiring employees that presently work for the organization. On the other hand, external recruitment is the process of hiring employees from external sources.
In my perpectives,the element that consider to decide the internal and external recuitment are how fast the candidate need to fill up the position(time-consuming process),cost,number of candidate,experience and qualification.
The organisation requirement to fill up the postion as soon as possible to support the bussiness.Internal recruitment is quick as the pool of candidates already work with the organization. In contrast, external recruitment is time-consuming.Internal recruitment is cost-effective, unlike external recruitment.Besides that,Internal recuitment promotes loyalty and can even improve employee morale as it serves as a reward for existing employees.It also saves time and money on training as the internal applicant will have more knowledge of the organisation and culture.It also reduce employee turn over because matching internal candidates with the roles that fit the personality and skills means that they stay longer at the company and increases employee retention.
Organisation will go for external recuitment to hire high number of candidate.If there is no qualified talent or required skills set within the organisation,The organisation will consider to get the experience and qualified candiate externally.The organisation will approach the recuitment agency and advertise in website to hired externally to increase the chances of recruiting experienced and qualified candidates that can create new ideas.The talent within the organisation not interested on the particular vacancy and the organisation need more talent with required skills to support the bussiness,so these will force the organisation to hire externally.
The situations determine the kind of recruitment the organization opts for. If the organization wants to save time and cost and give promotion to qualified internal staff, it might opt for internal recruitment. If it wants to bring in new ideas or no internal candidate interested on the job, it might opt for external recruitment.
