Unformatted text preview: Application Assignment 2: Recruitment Interview Interviewing 3306-04 (100 points) Due Date: 10/04, 10/06 Points: 100 Assignment Overview: This assignment is designed to give students the opportunity to be a recruiter (interviewer) and an applicant (interviewee). Realism will be stressed in these interviews by having interviewers work in recruiting teams to create job descriptions and interview schedules as well as conduct interviews. Student applicants will be required to present resumes, cover letters, and other job related items as requested by recruiting teams. It is important to see the selection process from both sides of the table because you will play both roles in your professional and social lives. Though you are undoubtedly most interested in the applicant role at this stage in your life as you seek internships and positions, you will play the role of recruiter far more often in the future than the role of applicant. You will be an applicant only a few times in your life, but you are likely to be involved continually in the recruiting process with organizations that employ you, regardless of your job description. You are also likely to be involved in "social" hiring situations such as selecting clergy for your church, superintendents for your children’s school system, directors of local music groups, and candidates for your political parties. As a bonus, understanding what the recruiter does and why will make you a more effective applicant. Student recruiters will assume the role of screening interviewers for Baylor, while student applicants will assume the role of college seniors looking for an entry-level position. No additional role-playing is necessary for this assignment. The Interview Scenario You and your partner are human resources representatives for Baylor University.
