Small business recruiting
In small businesses, managers usually handle their own recruiting. What methods would you use for the following situations? Why?
(a) The regular janitor is going on vacation for three weeks.
(b) Your office assistant who manages all appointments and handles all filing in your office has the flu and won’t be in the office for two days.
(c) Two more salespersons are needed: one for local customers and one to open a sales office in Victoria, British Columbia.
(d) Your only chemist is retiring and must be replaced with a highly skilled individual.
(e) Next week, your only computer programmer/analyst plans to begin on a three-week leave to visit his sick mother in India. If his mother’s health turns for the worse, he may be delayed by another week or two.
