Job Posting

Hiring from within ideally relies on job posting and the firm’s skills inventories. Job posting means publicizing the open job to employees (usually by literally posting it on company intranets or bulletin boards). These postings list the job’s attributes, like qualifications, supervisor, work schedule, and pay rate.

Qualifications skills banks also play a role. For example, the database may reveal persons who have potential for further training or who have the right background for the open job.
