Methods of Internal Sources of Recruitment

However, there are four methods used for searching internal candidates. They are:
1) Job posting: It calls for informing employees about job vacancies or openings and required qualifications along with experiences and inviting qualified employees to apply. Bulletin board, notices, personal letters, printed bulletins, or by computerized posting programs etc. can be used for this purpose. Any employee who is interested may bid on the job i.e. enter the competition for the job.

2) Employee referrals: Informal communications among managers can lead to discover the best candidate for a job already working in a different section of the organisation.

3) Skills inventories: Internal employee records are used in developing inventory of talents within the organization. Today, computerized skills inventories of employees are used for this purpose. Human resource management (HRM) searches this inventory to identify most qualified job candidates.

4) Inside moonlighting: It refers to enticing people by offering bonus, overtime etc. to take up the additional job or second job. Thus, some people will clearly be motivated to accept the additional work if they are fairly compensated.
