Part 2

You may choose local or specific job sites for this assignment, but include the Web site links in your submission. Look at the ease of use and the value of the general information provided on these Web sites. Would you use this site to search for a job? Should CapraTek use these Web sites to post job positions or search for applicants?

Using information from the two job search Web sites, create additional PowerPoint slides and two paragraphs in the notes sections to include the following:

Correlation: Measuring the Relationship Between Two Sets of Numbers

Transcript iconTranscript


Use your Recruiting, Interviewing, Selecting & Orienting New Employees e-book to read Chapter 14, “Social Networks and Hiring,” pages 264–277. This chapter discusses issues that social networking raises, including an employer using an applicant’s social networking site as an initial screening device.

Use your Staffing Organizations book to read Chapter 7, “Measurement,” pages 313–365. This chapter introduces important concepts, including four levels of measurement, as the course moves toward selecting the person to hire. It then looks at the way scoring is reviewed, including central tendency (average), percentiles, and standard scores. All of this leads to the concept of correlation or the relationship between two sets of numbers (example: height and weight for 20 fifth graders).
