Internal recruitment is fulfilling job vacancies that are open within the organization. It involves recruiting, interviewing and selecting candidates for the vacant positions. Internal hiring helps ensure no gap in skills and experience between current and recruited employees. Existing employees are a great source of internal knowledge and experience about the company and projects. They can do most of the work without hiring new employees because they already have internal knowledge, making it easier to scale up or down quickly. It reduces the time and cost of hiring new employees by freeing up the need. Organizations use their employees’ prior experience to help them with ongoing projects.
