vacant position is necessary. The interview is generally in person. An Interview is the first opportunity an
employer to get know the candidate.
The first stage
is a phone interview. Hiring manager will contact the applicants. This is also

questions about the job, goals and discussing different situation that can up

ambassador Bloomsbury hotel we have various selection during interviews and
recruiting a candidate for the ideal role.
Firstly, we need to establish which
candidate is suitable for the role by looking at a candidate’s performance,
specific skill, knowledge and experience. These are usually categorised in
these four areas.
To try to understand if the candidate
fits these four areas, we then look at other areas that link to these requirements.
This could be from how ones behavioural in nature and those that may be
technical. The technique requirements refer to specific skills, expertise or
experience that the position demands. For example, if we were to hire a maintained
employee for the hotels computers we will look at the technical side of things,
this may be that is the ideal candidate able to monitor and maintain the
computer systems and networks with in the organisation. Behavioural
requirements relate to how a person needs to act in order to complete a given
responsibilities. These are usually aimed at duty manager roles with in the
hotel, to see if they are well organised, self-motivated and have attention to
detail. Behavioural requirements also relate to good communication skills. It
could also relate to body language and how one listens to complaints and solve
When recruiting for front of house or
food & beverage we usually should tend to see talents with in the hotel.
This results to one of our weakness. This could also save us time and money
during the process. It could also lead to losing employees who want to be
promoted from food and beverage to front of house. It then builds up pressure and
frustration with in the management. And shows that certain areas or
interviewing and recruitment techniques are not up to standards with in the
process is important for the company, to make sure business is hiring the best
person for position. There is ways how to improve the process for the business,
because if company do not make right decision it would cost more for
should make candidate not feel stressful, make them feel relax and ease during
the interview. Interview is stressful for the candidate and company should not
to that even more, but not everyone can understand that. Business should make
sure they keep contact with the previous employees, who have left from company,
because you never know when business need talents. This is also good to keep
best terms with the employees. Company also should create social networking
group one of the sites like Facebook or LinkedIn keep in touch with previous
employees. Doing that this would help the candidate be them self, this brings
out their best availability, what business would looking for. Business would
lose good candidate if they stress out the applicant, and that could cost time
and money to recruiting process.
The biggest problem
that business can be face is to put wrong people on the interviewing the
potential applicants. Firstly they should make sure they will need to train the
people who would be qualified to interview the applicants. If person do not
know how make the interview, can be fatal for the business, because they could
miss potential talent they wanted to hire. Firstly train people to make
interviews. Secondly business should prepare the questions that they use can
use during the interview and they also make sure all some questions are used
with all the applicants. Using questions during the interview will help
evaluate the candidate and if person is right for the job.
business should considering improving the practice for the hiring manager or managers
providing more structure or guideline

would help rate them accordingly and they would hire right person. This would
help business save time, because interview process is long and time consuming.

set up by organisation. This would save time and money for company.
Hiring process should be measured effectively,
because if the organisation has a few critical hiring metrics, make sure this
have been set up, like time, cost and sourcing effectiveness. This method would
show the organisation how efficient and cost-effective hiring process is, which

need to make sure they hire right person, because the cost of hire ring wrong
person is costly, time consuming.
Recruiting the wrong person can cost the business lots of money, plus
the time that business have spent to train new person, who is not fit for the
positions. When company have realising they hired wrong person, business have
to repeat recruitment and interview process again. This process is long and
costly for company, time of the training.
People who are
not fit for the job, need more time for training and attention. This also would
reduce the time that manager can train and develop other people in the company.
This would lead to the situation that other employees feel left out and can

limited capabilities takes time to train and their productivity is slower,

can lead to refund for customers. This can be results of poor recruitment.
Business can be desperate to hire new person, without realising hiring right

but they were desperate find new one really quickly. This lead to spending time
to training the person long time, but after a while this was not enough,
because person take it too long to understand the job task. This eventually led
the person left from work.
Hiring the wrong
person can have an impact on the business and productivity. If the employee
can’t do the job it would impact on other team members and in some cases a
