Receipt and Scrutiny of Applications:
The receipt and scrutinizing of applications is the first step in the process of selection. A receptionist in the personnel department gives information about new opening to the visitors and receives their application.
The scrutiny of applications is essential to take out those applications which do not fulfill the requirements of posts. Some people send applications even when they do not possess the required experience and qualifications. These applicants, if called for preliminary interview, will waste their own time and that of the company. These applications should out rightly be rejected and information should be sent to the applicants in this regard.
