discuss the employment process

This Discussion provides you with an opportunity to apply and discuss the employment process concepts presented in your Reading and Learning Activity.

You practiced with the hiring process concepts in the Learning Activity this week. Learning how to apply this process should better prepare you for your current or future management position. Most managers must participate in or are responsible for the hiring process at some point in their jobs. If you run a small business you may have to do all the hiring yourself, at least initially.

Read the scenario below and then respond to the Discussion topics.


GlobalTrek is an adventure clothing and supply company. They specialize in first time – moderate experienced adventure travelers. They carry travelling clothes that are meant to take a beating, as well as gear such as rehydration salts, climbing ropes and carbines, backpacks with emergency GPS devices, and the like. They also have various global treks going on throughout the world that are guided lasting anywhere from 7–30 days. They now have 65 employees and are projected to pass 100 employees within the next 2 years.

Their employees are young but experienced outdoors personnel. They outsource any inventions they create in terms of gear to two companies in Asia. They then sell assorted existing gear from other companies as well. Usually they have had no problems hiring people through referrals and social networking. But lately they have had some concerns that some of the potential employees may pose a security risk and expose them to additional liability. They also need to hire additional coordinating and administrative personnel. Their clients are typically in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. But one of their faster growing segments is young families.

What should the titles of the jobs be and what should the job specifications include for each type of position? How should they advertise these positions? Justify your choices.
