Personnel selection is changing. Whilst traditional face-to-face interviews are still common, the range of assessment processes that inform the selection of candidates is increasingly diverse, taking advantage not only of new technologies, but also using new methods and strategies, such as assessment centres and personality testing. This new collection looks at the most important contemporary issues in recruitment, selection and assessment today, highlighting the latest research from the perspective of both recruiter and applicant.

The book is written by an international range of prominent scholars in this area, and provides up-to-date analysis of key topic areas, including:

  • How measurements of intelligence can impact on recruitment policies
  • The use and value of personality tests
  • An analysis of social interaction in the interview process
  • The value and impact of video resumes in recruitment
  • How social networks affect how applicants are perceived
  • Job analysis and competencies modelling

Part of the Current Issues in Work & Organizational Psychology series, this is an important book that shines a light on the latest theory and practice in employee recruitment. It will interest not only students and researchers of Organizational Psychology, HRM and Business and Management, but will also engage professionals in the field.
