    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that when a vacancy arises, the line manager must be aware of and understand concerns and act quickly. However, the correct answer is False because the statement does not provide any information about the line manager's responsibilities when a vacancy arises.

    A useful method of identifying the content and relevance of a particular job is by way of a job description exercise.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A job description exercise is not a useful method for identifying the content and relevance of a particular job. While a job description exercise can provide information about the tasks and responsibilities of a job, it may not accurately reflect the actual content and relevance of the job. Other methods, such as job shadowing or interviewing current employees, may be more effective in understanding the true nature of a job. Therefore, the statement that a job description exercise is a useful method is false.

By considering these factors, organizations can gain a comprehensive understanding of the job requirements, responsibilities, and relationships, which is crucial for effective recruitment, selection, training, and performance management processes.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The job description is derived from the job analysis process and provides a comprehensive overview of the job's scope, as well as the primary duties and responsibilities associated with it.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because sourcing job candidates can indeed be a costly process. Companies often spend significant amounts of money on advertising and recruitment efforts to attract qualified candidates. Therefore, it is important to carefully select the market or platform through which the job vacancy is advertised to ensure that the company is reaching the right audience and maximizing the chances of finding suitable candidates.

      Job

    B. Personnel
    Explanation
    The term "personnel" refers to the employees or staff members of an organization. In this context, the question is asking for a specification that represents the ideal person that the organization wants to hire for a job. Therefore, the correct answer is "personnel" as it aligns with the concept of describing the desired qualities and characteristics of the individuals who will perform the job to expectations.

      References

    • B.

      Selection interviews

    • C.

      Psychometric testing

    • D.

      Assessment centres

    Correct Answer
    B. Selection interviews
    Explanation
    Selection interviews do not need to be limited to a face-to-face activity. This means that selection interviews can be conducted through other means such as phone interviews, video conferences, or online assessments. This allows for more flexibility in the selection process and can accommodate candidates who may not be able to attend an in-person interview. Additionally, using alternative methods for selection interviews can save time and resources for both the interviewer and the candidate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the final recruitment activities are necessary for examining and updating vacant job positions in terms of job content. However, this is not true. The final recruitment activities typically involve activities such as conducting interviews, making job offers, and completing necessary paperwork. The examination and updating of job content usually occur during the job analysis and job design stages, not during the final recruitment activities. Therefore, the statement is false.
