Recruitment refers to the process of attracting and screening people who could potentially do a job. The selection process then follows to narrow down the search and evaluate the candidates to establish which one could do the best job. For some components of the recruitment process, mid- and large-size organizations will often use professional recruiters to find the ideal candidates for a position or outsource some of the process to recruitment agencies.

Recruitment agencies are becoming more and more popular as companies realise that it takes a lot of time and effort to find the ideal candidate for a position. This is because unemployment is so high at the moment; there are often huge amounts of applications for just one position. There are employment agencies, recruitment websites and job search engines.

There are also ‘headhunters’ for executive and professional recruitment and niche agencies which specialize in a particular area of staffing. Some organizations use employer branding strategy and in-house recruitment instead of agencies. Recruitment-related functions are generally carried out by an organization's human resources staff.

The recruitment process involves screening potential candidates using tests and/or interviews. Once the screening is complete, the selection of candidates based on the results of the tests and/or interviews will begin. The selection process will look at the candidates in more detail to see which one is suitable for the job and had the potential to fulfil their new role effectively. Effective selection can be done only when there is effective matching and the company hope to select the best candidate for the required job, to ensure they get quality performance from their employees. Organizations will face less of absenteeism and employee turnover problems if the right candidate is recruited so the company will then save time and money.

Recruitment and selection are two different concepts with different meaning and usage. Though they are interrelated to the extent that one cannot be meaningful or succesful without the other thus, they are different. 1.Recruitment is about creating awareness to the public about the job vacancies available and stimulating people to apply for job in the organisation. While Selection has to do with picking the best and qualified applicant from the large pool without being biased or subjective after series test. 2.Recruitment is positive as it ensures that many applicant are attracted but Selection is negative it rejects many applicant. 3.Recruitment cannot be succesful without advertisement bt Selection are done internally without any publicity.

There is huge difference between Recruitment and Selection; as we can say recruitment means very first step and selection means finally hired for a profile.

Recruitment happens when you set out your stall to gather people who are capable of fulfilling posts in a workplace. Selection is when you try to hire people with a proven talent or expertise necessary to the posts.

To recruit is to solicit individuals for a job, position, activity, etc. The solicitation may encourage voluntary participation, or it may be (if done by a governmental body) involuntary. To select is to choose between a number of possible candidates for the job, position, activity, etc.
