Attracting and selecting talented individuals is key to the success of any organization. Once you've defined what the 'right' talent is for your particular area, you need strategies and tactics for attracting, recruiting, and selecting talented people.

This course describes two approaches to talent acquisition – hiring internally and hiring from outside – and explains the best situations in which to use each. It provides examples of how to implement an effective talent recruiting strategy and outlines how to conduct interviews that result in the selection of talented individuals who fit in the organization.
