Introduction:
The recruitment process involves finding the right people for the position or positions a company may be looking for. One has to make sure the individual or individuals are qualified for the position as well. Often times there are many applicants that apply for a position and choosing going through the applications can be a challenge in itself. Company’s go to great length to make sure they project what they would like to the community with regard to their business and community involvement. Advertising can play an important role in this. This is where the company can express its values and culture within the company.
There can be barriers to recruiting such as the labor market and qualified workers that may or may not be available. How a company deals with this is also very important. Human resources play the lead role in the recruitment process. There are many methods that can be developed in order to reach the target audience. It is important to understand where qualified applicants will come from. Whether the organization hires from within or from outside the organization it is important to develop a plan that recognizes the difficulties and challenges in recruiting.
In an article called Recruitment Process Outsourcing Today’s Challenges and Opportunities, it states there are benefits to outsourcing the recruitment process. “Organizations outsource recruitment and hiring practices for many reasons. Some may lack the internal resources to address their talent acquisition needs. Others may want to focus on core competencies, or to look for a competitive advantage in competing for talent. Whatever the reasons, Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a growing practice. Despite this growth, limited information exists on the trends in RPO use, the specific recruitment practices it includes, and how well it is being carried out.” In this article…...

Our Indeginous Language and Its Identity

...the so called minorities. The implication is that such minority languages are on their own either to swim or sink. The frightening prospect is that some of these endangered minority languages may be heading irredeemably towards extinction unless some immediate steps are taken to save them from plunging headlong into the pit of oblivion. There is lack of serious commitment on the part of the states’ governments, who should be concerned and involved in setting up committees that would argue, deliberate, organize debates and conferences for the promotion and development of languages within their domain. This is most peculiar in states comprising of minority languages. Benue State is one of such states. The former Benue State Governor Mr. Aper Aku, was one governor that had great passion for developing the Tiv language. He formed an ad-hoc committee for this purpose during his tenure in office but unfortunately, successive government regimes have failed to uphold this vision and so we are where we are today (Report of Ad-hoc Committee, 1988). Globalization is another threat to the development of indigenous languages. English is fast assuming the position of a world language because it is the language of the internet and no provision is made on the internet for local languages. Thus, the aspiration of making the world a global village will cause more harm than good to indigenous languages. In our urbanized societies today, indigenous languages are fast wearing out because of...

...implemented by a series of directives which have overlaid a market integration framework objective on the Basel rules and applied them to investment firms which face market risk as a result of trading in financial instruments. Both the Basel and EU systems have focused on the solvency of individual institutions, with much less attention being paid to systemic risk or liquidity, both of which have featured prominently in the credit crisis. Table 2 Risk Control under FSMA 2000 Risk Failure to meet regulatory capital requirements (solvency & liquidity) Risk threshold FSA Principle 4 FSA GENPRU Internal systems and control (firms) Risk threshold FSA Handbook SYSC Competence and integrity (individuals) Prohibition Risk threshold FSA Handbook APER Strategy Substance In the UK context, the minimum levels of regulatory capital set by the Basel accords and the EU Directives are of limited practical relevance for two reasons. First, market counterparties may demand higher levels of capital as a condition for access to certain forms of money-market finance and higher levels of capital will, ceteris paribus, generate a higher credit rating for a bank’s own debt, thereby lowering its funding cost. Second, the FSA is empowered to set individual capital adequacy standards for banks in the form of individual capital guidance (ICG) which then represents ‘a regulatory intervention point’ for the purposes of supervision. 171 However, following the principles-based approach that......

For purposes of CVP analysis, mixed costs must beclassified into their fixed and variable elements. One method that management may use isthe high-low method.4. List the five components of cost-volume-profit analysis. The five components of CVPanalysis are (a) volume or level of activity, (b) unit selling prices, (c) variable cost per unit,(d) total fixed costs, and (e) sales mix.5. Indicate what contribution margin is and how it can be expressed. Contribution marginis the amount of revenue remaining after deducting variable costs. It can be expressed as aper unit amount or as a ratio.6. Identify the three ways to determine the break-even point. The break-even point can be(a) computed from a mathematical equation, (b) computed by using a contribution margintechnique, and (c) derived from a CVP graph.7. Define margin of safety and give the formulas for computing it. Margin of safety is thedifference between actual or expected sales and sales at the break-even point.

Foundations of Psychology

...disguise. As stated in Psychopathology of Everyday Life, “By discarding the old methods of treatment and strictly applying himself to a study of the patient’s life he discovered that the interpretation of dreams, Psychoanalysis, and the Ego all have definite meanings. There was nothing arbitrary in suggesting unhealthy mental attitudes exist. While tracing back the abnormal to the normal state Freud found how faint the line of demarcation was between the normal and neurotic person.” During the 1950s Behaviorism became the leading school of thought. This school of thought was founded by Johns B. Watson based on the belief that behaviors can be measured, trained, and changed. Behaviorism was established with the publication of Watson’s classic aper “Psychology as the Behaviorist Views It” (1913). There are a number of important theorists and psychologists who left and indelible mark on behaviorism. B. F Skinner believed that “we are born blank slates and we gain everything via our environment. Skinner favored the behaviorist perspective with his concept of Operant Conditioning along with Edward Thorndike. Through Operant Conditioning an association is made between a behavior and a consequence for that behavior. Ivan Pavlov developed the concept of the conditioned reflex. This idea became the basics for treating psychiatric patients in quiet and non-stimulating external surroundings. Clark L Hulk was influential psychologist who sought to explain learning and motivation by......

To Work or Not to Work

...expectations for accountability in the past two decades have made it imperative that higher education administrators and researchers pay attention to the potential impact of student work on the college outcomes. As a result, research literature has been accumulating in the area of student employment and its impact on student academic achievement, personal and social growth, as well as retention and graduation rates. A review of literature reveals that, although research questions raised are quite straightforward, the answers are not. It all depends on which outcomes are measured (Furr and Elling, 2000). For every study which postulates the benefits of student employment, there is an equally compelling study purporting the exact opposite (Aper, 1994). Student employment can affect academic and/or cognitive development positively or adversely. A moderate amount of nonacademic work is considered to be helpful to academic achievement when compared to heavy or no employment (Hood, Craig, and Ferguson, 1992). Similarly, a study of 408 first-year pharmacy students at three different institutions found working and non-working students performed equally well in academic achievement: “Employment while in college simply did not appear to affect students’ levels of academic achievement” (Fjortoft, 1995, 8). One logical explanation may be that, while working does affect the amount of time available, students tend to reduce To Work Or Not To Work Page 2 leisure and socializing time......

Flu Aper

...Influenza or the flu affects an estimated 5-15% of the world’s population and results in 500,000 deaths annually. (World Health Organization, 2009). In the United States, between 1979 and 2001, averages of 226,000 persons were hospitalized and 36,000 died each year as a result of complications from influenza. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2007[CDC]). The primary method for preventing influenza is the flu vaccine, which is available in a variety of settings including clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and schools. The vaccine is typically distributed in October and November in anticipation of the winter flu season, which usually begins in late November and peaks in February. Influenza has been a common seasonal irritant for many years; it is a respiratory infection caused by a variety of viruses. Its symptoms are consistent with those of a cold, congestion, fever, chills, aches and pains. The virus can pass through the air and enter the body through the nose or mouth; it is spread very easily and very contagious. Everyone needs to be aware of the dangers of the influenza virus and the benefits of the influenza vaccine. The vaccine is a primary level of intervention to prevent a person from becoming ill with the influenza virus. Once vaccinated against the influenza antibodies are produced and hopefully the person who was vaccinated will not become infected. Cross-transmission of influenza infection from healthcare personnel (HCP) to patients has been described......

The success of Amenhotep III’s building schemes, and as result the economic prosperity and stability of Egypt, was reflected in the efficient administration led by talented officials and bureaucracy. Such was Amenhotep Son of Hapu, who was oversaw the recruiting of civil and military workers as well as the supervision of buildings. Additionally, the Pharoah’s viziers were namely Ptahmose, Ramose, Amenhotep, and Aper-el- all of whom he conferred with for legal and administrative advice. The benefits of building were twofold. As historian Kemp mentions, “Ideology needs architecture for its fullest expression”, just as building represented the pharaoh’s, thus all of Egypt’s, prosperity. Most if not all of the pharaohs’ building programs were temples. In dedicating places to particular gods, the pharaoh demonstrated piety, and consequently in pleasing the gods, further secured the maintenance of Egypt’s economic wealth- fulfilling another facetof upholding ma’at. Initially, the promotion of the Amun cult, a major god, was the primary project of Amenhotep; investing a significant portion of Egypt’s wealth towards the priesthood. Schemes involved......

It is produced by pressing together moist fibers, typically cellulose pulp derived from wood, rags or grasses, and drying them into flexible sheets. Paper is a versatile material with many uses. Whilst the most common is for writing and printing upon, it is also widely used as a packaging material, in many cleaning products, in a number of industrial and construction processes, and even as a food ingredient – particularly in Asian cultures.
