VOCATIONAL SELECTION. PREPARING, CONDUCTING AND BASIC METHODS.
Providing help in finding and employing someone suitable is a task often undertaken by psychologists. Its most important element is a valid diagnosis of capabilities among job candidates. We have now many methods to make such a diagnosis: biographical inventories, mental ability tests, inventories of main personality traits, selection interview, and simulation techniques. In many cases it is necessary to develop specific tools tailored for each selection process. There will be given the most important guidelines useful for beginners in this activity. Main topics: general context of recruitment, preparing selection procedure, selection methods, and planning of selection procedure.
Therefore, the publication contains a broad description of several aspects of the selection process and job recruitment. Its second issue is updated and enriched with the new literature concerning the questions presented in the book.
