The University of Cincinnati chapter hosted guest speaker Chris Ramsey, a partner and owner of R.W. Hunt, who shared some valuable information on recruiting and selection with the students. Ms. Ramsey has more than 20 years of experience as a "headhunter". Her advice to HR professionals is to "know who your customer is in the company." To find the right candidate, you must understand what kind of personality will fit best with the organizational culture. Another tip for successful recruiting is to really listen to the candidate during an interview. With careful listening, the interviewer can discover the candidate's personality, their preferred working style, and what is important to them in a job. In the future, Ramsey sees the Internet becoming a significant force in the recruiting process. She feels that online recruiting can produce more cost-effective results than traditional means such as newspaper ads and job fairs.
