Unemployed potential employees who are not affiliated with the firm currently are chosen or hired. Firm will utilize job recruiter’s expertise to find and approach external job applicants. Employees taken outside from the firm could contribute vast new ideas and approach due to their nature of unique background prior to their current role with the firm. The new external recruit may have extra knowledge or technics to complete a certain task compared to employee who have been taken internally. This could benefit the firm with a fresh perspective of their business as usual. External recruitment allows a firm to look for possible candidates out of larger candidate pool.

Leadership position could be given to existing employees since the hiring in charge knows the candidate strength, technical competencies, and leadership skills. These actions can be labelled as promotion which could boost the morale or the certain employee or team internally. Existing employees have the best understanding of business as usual of the firm and their colleagues very well. The hiring method would be very simple compared to external recruitment. The open position can be advertised to potential internal recruits by blasting internal emails. Sometimes, businesses hire employees to do temporary work. Temporary employees can be hired on full time, which is often referred to as temp to direct, or temp to hire. Hiring a temporary employee on full time often results in more hours worked, increased responsibilities, and higher pay. This also involves the client company having to pay a contract conversion fee to the recruiter for having sourced the worker. Hiring managers can test a temporary employee’s skills before onboarding them for full-time work. Internal recruitment gives employees within the firm the chance to grow or climb the rank within the organization without feeling demotivated. This step could help the firm with retention of their employees.
