Assignment #5 Chapter 18 Questions for Critical Thinking 2 and 4 The selection process is where applicants go through several stages – three are shown in the exhibit-during which they can be rejected at any time. In the initial selection devices are the first information applicants submit and are used for preliminary “rough cuts” to decide whether an applicant meets the basic qualification for a job. This is an important phase, since organizations perform background checks and narrow down the selection pool to those who are qualified and seem suitable for the job at first glance. In the substantive selection applicants who are most qualified are chosen from among those who meet the basic qualifications. Written tests, performance tests, and interviews are given to get a deeper understanding of how the potential employee might adapt to his work environment. Finally, in the contingent selection process final checks are made before making an offer to applicants. Drug tests and background check are given. After the contingent selection applicants receive a job offer if they pass the tests. The selection device is important to companies, because demanding tests are given to make sure people who are most likely to embrace the company’s culture are selected. Back ground checks, interviews, and written tests given provides detailed information about the applicant, which makes it easier for employers to predict if the applicant would enjoy working at the company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
