Case studies are an essential learning  strategy in business classes; they provide an opportunity for you to  critically analyze events that have taken place in real-life businesses.  This develops your critical thinking and research skills as you  research the competition and industry in which your business resides  with an end goal of formulating a recommendation for the challenges  faced by the company. The case studies in this course are aligned with The Society for Human Resource Management Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK). They address the key functional areas of human resources and human capital management.  For this assignment, you will review the following case study: Southwood: A Case Study in Recruitment and Selection. To access this document, navigate to the Terms of Use for Students webpage, and click on the button at the bottom of the page to agree to the terms and conditions. Once you are on the Student Workbooks  webpage, scroll down to the Workforce Planning section, and select the  following link: “Case Study: Southwood School—Recruitment and  Selection.” To access the case study, select the “student workbook”  link. Evaluate this case and respond to each  of the following prompts using both theory and practical managerial  thinking as well as supporting research.  What are the main reasons why a vacancy may occur in the organization?  What are the advantages of using the internet for recruitment?  What alternative recruitment methods could Southwood use?  Why do you think Southwood felt that one panel interview was insufficient as a selection method?  What suggestions do you have to improve the process overall? You can access a  Sample Case Study                 from the CSU Writing Center. Do not use the question-and-answer format;  rather, use the  format demonstrated in the sample case study.  Your response should be a minimum of  two pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages.
