Week 1: Staffing For Your Own Job
In order to respond to the questions adequately, it is important that you read the assigned chapters for this week.
Consider a job you previously held or your current job. Review the textbook chapters assigned for this week paying particular attention to the staffing components model in chapter 1 to assist you in thinking through and analyzing the staffing process that led to your getting hired for the job. Trace and describe the process from your own perspective as a job applicant and from the organization’s perspective. Consider the following and respond in the discussion for this week. Respond to at least one of your class colleagues.
Note: Please make sure you respond to all aspects of the discussion for this week.
Considering the Applicant Perspective
Why did you identify and seek out the job with this organization?
How did you gather information about the job’s requirements and rewards?
Why did you decide to continue on with the staffing process, rather than drop out of it?
Considering the Organization Perspective
(Even if you are unsure of the answers to the following questions, try to answer them or guess at them.)
How did the organization identify you as a job applicant?
What techniques (application blank, interview, etc.) did the organization use to gather KSAO information about you?
(KSAO: Knowledge, Skills, Abilities and Other Characteristics)
Why did the organization continue to pursue you as an applicant, rather than reject you from further consideration?
Reactions to the Staffing Process
What are your reactions to the staffing process? What were the strong points? What were the weak points? What changes would you like to see made in the process? Why?
After making your first post, engage with your colleagues about their ideas.
