HRA 549 Recruitment, Selection Placeme

Module 1 Assignment 1

After reading Cascio & Aguinis’ article, read this interview of Craig Ramsey, former EVP of AMC Theatres, the second largest U.S. theater chain (and one of LCC’s direct competitors)! It contains valuable insight into trends and future directions for the movie theater/entertainment industry.

Read the article.

As the new Director of Talent Management, your first task is to write a brief email to the CEO of LCC detailing three specific plans to make strategic staffing decisions to address these industry trends. For example, it might be important to note trends towards a global audience and how your recruiting and hiring practices will support that based on changing demographics in the workforce.

Expect to take approximately 2-3 pages to explain your plans. Your work will be graded on content, clarity, creativity, correctness, and, above all, critical thinking per the HRA Written Assignment Rubric.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. (This Assignment box is linked to Turnitin.)

Module 2 Assignment 2

Now it is time to make the theoretical more applied. This one may require some pre-planning, so be sure to get started on it as early as possible. For this project, you may choose to work alone or collaborate with up to 2 peers.

Contact a local movie theater.** Conduct a formal job analysis on any ONE of the following job titles (or another similar job title): Usher, Concessionist, Box Office Cashier, Server, Bartender, Projectionist, Assistant Manager, Manager, Regional Director, etc.

NOTE: YOU MAY NOT CHOOSE YOUR OWN JOB TITLE!!!

**If you are absolutely unable to use a movie theater for this assignment, you may substitute a job from a different sector of the service industry, such as a restaurant or commercial bank.

Submit a brief narrative report (expect to take 2-3 pages, double spaced) addressing the following:

Which job title did you analyze?

What methods did you use for analysis? (interviews, questionnaires, observation, etc.)

What sources did you use for analysis? (incumbents, supervisors, SMEs, O*NET, SHRM, BLS, etc.)

What challenges did you encounter during this process?

What would you do differently if you had more time to complete your analysis?

Also include a brief job description (expect to take about 1 page), to include:

Job title

Brief job summary

Job requirements (tasks and KSAOs)

Your work will be graded on content, clarity, creativity, correctness, and, above all, critical thinking per the HRA Written Assignment Rubric.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. (This Assignment box is linked to Turnitin.) [Note: if you collaborated on the assignment, only one author should submit, with the names of all team members on the report.]

Module 3 Assignment 3

Now it is time to make the theoretical more applied. For this project, you may choose to work alone or collaborate with up to 2 peers.

Surf the employment pages of 3 different corporate websites. Try to choose different industries and/or different sized organizations for comparison. Analyze the major features, strengths, and weaknesses of the recruiting messages you view throughout each site, from the employment splashdown page to specific position postings.

Prepare a brief narrative report that summarizes, compares, and contrasts your findings.

Does each organization rely on a particular style of recruiting message? If so, which one(s) and why?

How well do these sites support the trends and strategies presented in this module’s readings?

Suppose you were an outside consultant brought in to overhaul recruiting at these organizations. What recommendations will you make to revise or change the site or the message presented? Why?

Expect to take about 4-5 pages (double-spaced, 12 point font) to complete this assignment. Your work will be graded on content, clarity, creativity, correctness, and, above all, critical thinking per the HRA Written Assignment Rubric.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. (This Assignment box is linked to Turnitin.) [Note: if you collaborated on the assignment, only one author should submit, with the names of all team members on the report.]

Module 5 Assignment 4

Choose a job that you are interested in. For this assignment, you may relate it to your term project by choosing a movie theater job title, or you may choose an unrelated job. However, you may not choose your own current job(s).

You may work with one partner, or on your own.

Develop a test or assessment for the job. While the assessment does not have to be a written or typed test, it should not be an interview situation (interviews will be covered at length in the next module).

Start by providing:

Job Title

Brief List of KSAOs (this can be presented in outline format/bullet points)

Describe your test in detail and provide a minimum of 3 sample items/questions. Be sure to:

Describe how you will develop the test (hint – think of job analysis)

Describe what type of test it is

Explain when and where in the selection process it will occur and who will administer it (e.g., immediately after application vs. closer to the end of the selection process, computerized/online vs. at the jobsite, proctored vs. unproctored, HR staff vs. hiring managers, etc.). Remember to give consideration to why you made these choices

Discuss relative costs/person hours required to administer it and how this relates to the utility of the test

Discuss how you will address and balance any issues related to reliability, validity, applicant perceptions, fake-ability, utility, and adverse impact

Expect to take about 3-4 pages (double-spaced, 12 point font) to complete this assignment. Your work will be graded on content, clarity, creativity, correctness, and, above all, critical thinking per the HRA Written Assignment Rubric.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. (This Assignment box is linked to Turnitin.) [Note: if you collaborated on the assignment, only one author should submit, with the names of all team members on the assignment.]

Module 6 Assignment 5

Choose a job that you are interested in. For this assignment, you may relate it to your term project by choosing a movie theater job title, or you may choose an unrelated job.

Create a structured behavioral interview for the job you chose.

Start by providing:

Job Title

Brief Job Description

Discuss relative costs/person hours required to conduct the interview and how this relates to the utility of the interview.

Provide a scoring rubric to rate candidate responses on each of your sample questions.

Your rubric should include behavioral anchors (explanations at each scale point, see the example on the next page – note that you may have as many or as few scale points as you wish, numeric or qualitative).

Expect to take about 3-4 pages (double-spaced, 12 point font) to complete this assignment. Your work will be graded on content, clarity, creativity, correctness, and, above all, critical thinking per the HRA Written Assignment Rubric.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. (This Assignment box is linked to Turnitin.) [Note: if you collaborated on the assignment, only one author should submit, with the names of all team members on the report.]

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
