Still I will develop more ideas about internal recruitment sources.One of the most effective methods of internal recruitment is job-posting.It announces employees about vacancies posts by letters, publications, radio or television.Also, vacancies can be filled by promotion or transfer.The advantages of this recruitment are : company already knows employees' skills, selection is more efficent and the time for accomodation is much lower.This type or recruitment have disadvantages including :promoting only seniority criterion may reduce innovation.
The external recruitment sources involved much time and money but also have advantages: lower training costs and encourages new ideas.External recruitment is made by the method of formal and informal but most posts deals throught informal method because this method use limited advertising and does't cost anything.Formal method uses various forms of advertising to find people who want a job.

Recruitment advertisement may be the first impression of a company for many people, and the first impression the firm makes goes a long way to determining interest in the job opening being advertised. Recruitment advertisements typically have a uniform layout and contain the following elements:

Appropriate documentation is extremely important in all areas of scholarly work. Not only are there laws prohibiting unauthorized use of a borrowed source, but it is morally necessary to give credit where credit is due.
When creating a wiki page, each source from which one gains information
be cited--and cited properly. Citation is required when summarizing, quoting, or paraphrasing a source. If unsure about whether or not citation is necessary, cite it anyway. It is better to over-cite rather than under-cite. Also, too, be careful about citing images. It is not sufficient to reference Google images as a source just because Google was used to locate the image. Instead, go to the site that provides the image, and cite that.
Citation for the wiki pages should be treated in the same manner as though writing an English paper. Proper APA formatting involves in-text parenthetical citation as well as a reference section at the end of the page. Each source cited in the final "References" section should be listed alphabetically, too. In addition, when citing titles, italics are preferred to underlining. It is more aesthetically cohesive in a web document.
On this wiki we shall use the APA citation style. There is an example for each below.
