Strategies for Recruiting External Talent
Each student will be required to complete a research paper on a human resource management topic (Strategies for Recruiting External Talent). The main body of the paper will be 8-10 pages in length. In addition to the main body, the paper will include: Title page, Contents page (listing research paper “sub-heads” and page numbers), abstract, and References (or Works Cited).
The paper must be typewritten, double-spaced, using standard 1″ margins, and must not include an excessive amount of “bullet dots” in the body of the paper. The paper must include footnotes (citations) or references in the body of the paper that correspond to a listing on the References or Works Cited page. There should be at least 3-5 current references.
Students are encouraged to gather information from actual industry professionals within organizations, in addition to gathering research from the textbook, Web, books, journals, etc. Students may use any standardized referencing/footnoting formats, e.g., Modern Language Association (MLA) or American Psychological Association (APA). Proper use of English grammar and punctuation will be a consideration in grading. All papers must have a “Conclusion” (approximately one page at the end of the paper which provides a clear statement of what the student thought about the topic and why). The Conclusion must be “labeled” and is an essential part of the paper.
