Abstract [en]

In today's labor market the competition is tough. For people who are working with recruitment, the prospect for the coming years is hard competition and that people without professional experience will have difficulty in getting a job.

This study aims to explore what is valued in a recruiting process when recruiting individuals in the recruitment- and staffing industry. The study looks into if there are specific characteristics that recruiters value higher than others, who gets the job instead of someone else with similar conditions, and how much it is valued that a person is suited for the company. By examining the recruiters' perceptions and reasoning about the focused subject, we demonstrate what is actually appreciated in a recruitment process in the recruitment business. Previous research focuses on the concepts of recruitment, competence, employability and organizational culture, and our theoretical framework relates to the same concepts, which then served as the analytical tool for the interpretation of the empirical material. Through analysis of five semi structured interviews we have been able to answer our questions and gain a deeper understanding of what is actually being valued in a recruitment process in the recruitment- and staffing industry. The study shows that personal qualities are valued higher than formal skills, and that it is an important factor that people fit into the current organizational culture.
