As part of CapraTek’s human resources team, you have been asked to research other employers and their Internet recruiting practices.

Scenario

Create a 10–12 slide presentation that includes your findings about Internet recruiting and a job posting for a sales representative position.

As part of CapraTek’s human resources team, you have been asked to research other employers and their Internet recruiting practices. This assessment has three parts:

  1. Evaluate two employers’ online application processes.
  2. Evaluate two general online job search sites for ease of use and information available.
  3. Develop a job description for the CapraTek regional sales representative posting.

Present your information in the form of a PowerPoint presentation deck of 10–12 slides. Ensure your slides are uncrowded, visually appealing, and easy to read.

Requirements

Part 1: Identify two employers whose Web sites permit candidates to apply for positions online. You may choose any employer but preferably ones you might work for. Select only employers that allow online applications. Evaluate the user-friendliness of the application process and the value of the general job information found online. Consider whether the posted job information provides candidates with what they would want to know regarding the organization.

Using information from your research, create a PowerPoint slide presentation with bulleted points highlighting your key findings. Include the sites’ links. Add information in the slides’ notes section addressing the following:

  • Articulate the user-friendliness of the Web sites.
  • Compare the quality of the job information for each Web site from an employer’s point-of-view.

Part 2: Select two general job search Web sites (such as CareerBuilder, Indeed, SimplyHired, Monster). You may choose local or specific job sites. Look at the ease of use and the value of the general information provided on these Web sites.

Create additional slides for your presentation in which you include the links to the two Web sites and highlight your findings about them. Add information in the slides’ notes sections that includes the following:

  • Articulate the user-friendliness of these Web sites. Would you use them to search for a job? Why or why not?
  • Compare the quality of the job information for each Web site from an employer’s point-of-view.
  • Summarize findings for or against CapraTek using these selected Web sites for posting positions and searching for applicants.

Part 3: Using your job analysis information for CapraTek’s regional sales representatives, develop a job posting for this position. Make location, salary, and working conditions assumptions as needed. Finish the presentation with slides outlining the essentials for the regional sales representative job description as follows:

  • List the necessary qualifications, including educational background, technical experience, skills, and abilities.
  • Describe the physical environment and working conditions.
  • List the most important duties and responsibilities, with percentage of time spent on each, classifying each duty as essential or non-essential

Freedom of speech and censorship, in light of the modern digital landscape, are important concepts to consider, especially given the dubious ways in which technology can be utilized sometimes.

Freedom of speech and censorship, in light of the modern digital landscape, are important concepts to consider, especially given the dubious ways in which technology can be utilized sometimes. Superior expertise about how technologies work does not guarantee superior judgment about how they should be used, regulated, or governed. As technology becomes more sophisticated, how can citizens and political leaders judge and understand whether a given technology offers great perils or great promises? When great technological projects, such as venturing farther into the galaxy or developing new life-extending medicines, are proposed, how should government officials make decisions about how tax dollars should be spent?
