 Warming-up practice:
1. Recruitment involves seeking and
attracting a supply of people from
which qualified candidates for job
vacancies can be selected. Generally
it contains two forms: promotionfrom within and adding new
employee.
2. What are the possible channels for recruitment?
 Internal recruitment
 Job advertisements / the ‘Help Wanted’
advertisement
 Recruitment on college and university
campuses
 Recruitment agencies
 Management consulting firms
 Employee referrals【提名, 被推举的人】
 Labor unions
 Headhunting
3. Do you know “headhunting”? Talk about it.
 Headhunting, also executive search, is
particularly prevalent in areas where market
growth has been driven by skills shortages in
client companies who are in a constant process
of change. This is particularly the case in the
finance, consulting and information technology
sectors.
 The headhunter begins by identifying possible
candidates through desk research or extensive
contact networks. After making contact, the
headhunter interviews candidates at their
company offices or at a neutral location.
 Then the headhunter collates【 比 较 】
candidates’ CVs and presents his findings
to the client, who shortlists【最后挑选】
three or four candidates. The client then
interviews the candidates, after which the
headhunter provides feedback and assists
in the offer process to ensure a successful
conclusion.
 As for remuneration, the headhunter will
charge 30% percent of the appointee’s first
annual salary. The fee is normally charged
as retainer, a shortlist fee and a completion
fee.

A weak point, esp. in a person’s character,
whose resource is Iliad.

中未湿,所以脚跟成了唯一弱点;以后他
在战斗中恰恰因为脚跟受伤而死。
4) Headhunting is relatively cheap and
on the increase as selection gets worse and
worse.
Becoming more popular
Have an idea or plan that one has not
told anyone about.
有…锦囊妙计,留有…一招
5) Headhunters, on the other hand, have enough
tricks up their sleeve to produce a shorter,
better quality list of candidates.
相反,猎头公司却自有高招,能够炮制出
一份简短却高质量的候选人名单

connected to the switchboard.
