Prepare a response to the case application at the end of text chapter 9: “Choosing Among Finalists for the Job of HR Director.” See Course Syllabus for specific pages.
(1) Evaluating each of the 3 individuals using the selection methods specified in the text case, decide whom you would hire AND not hire for the position and explain the rationale for your decisions, i.e., methodology, criteria, etc. by which you reached your decision. Be sure to incorporate material from Chapter 9 in your analyses.
(2) Assume that NII desires to revise the assessment methods they have used for external selection in the past. Examine the tasks in the job description for the Human Resource Director presented in this exercise and infer/develop/identify 5-6 KSAs that align with the listed task requirements. Using these KSAs, prepare a selection plan for this position using Exhibit 9.11 (7th ed.) [Exhibit 9.10 (8th ed.)] as an example.
(3) Discuss how the selection plan you developed in part (2), and the process for selecting the HR Director used in part (2), might differ if NII decided to choose only from among internal candidates of the law firm for the position rather than seeking external candidates. Submit your response to the instructor using the “Assignment” function. Incorporate materials from Chapter 10 in your response to this part of the assignment.
Be sure to include all references and show your work.
