5-1 Discussion: Preliminary Methodology
In this discussion, state your proposed method, design, and data-collection instruments and reasons behind each. Provide clear justification for each choice you make as well as an explanation of the reliability and validity for instruments you have chosen.
Recruiting and Interviewing
Proposed Method: The proposed research methods used would be content analysis, case study’s and interviews/ questionnaires. Content analysis is important because “Researchers quantify (i.e. count) and analyze (i.e. examine) the presence, meanings and relationships of words and concepts” to develop conclusions (McLeod, 2007). During the recruiting and interviewing process words are critical. Case study’s are very direct and can go in depth. The data collected is qualitative and very reliable. Questionnaires can be thought of as a kind of written interview (McLeod, 2007). A structured interview very similar to a set of questions in a questionnaire is a convenient way to collect data.
Design: The design for this research is qualitative. There must be intense examination that go in depth to have a clear understanding of the process. This process will determine the prosperity of a company and this design will provide accurate results.
Data-Collection Instruments: The data will be collected throughout the processes by psychology professionals. Questionnaires will be electronically sent to and from the participants and then examined. The validity of the data will not be questionable due to the reliable research methods.

2-2 Milestone One: Resource Collection
In last week’s discussion, you submitted a potential topic for your proposal. This week, you will collect potential peer-reviewed resources for your proposal. Summarize the literature in a short paper. Discuss how each resource relates to your research questions or intervention you have chosen. In this paper, you may summarize each article in preparation for the synthesis you will do as part of Milestone Two.
Prompt: Integrate the literature relevant to your research questions or intervention in a three- to five-page paper. At the beginning of this paper, state yourresearch questions or intervention and explain the significance of these things within the field of psychology. Then discuss how each resource relates to yourresearch questions or intervention. In this paper, you may summarize each article in preparation for the synthesis that is necessary for the literature review youwill submit for Milestone Two. Milestone One is an opportunity for you to show how you can deeply immerse yourself in the literature in preparation for yourliterature review. In this assignment, you will analyze the resources to tell your own story in your literature review.
In your submission, be sure to include the critical elements listed below.
Develop well-formed research questions or a relevant intervention and explain the significance of these things within the field of psychology.
Recruiting and Interviewing
Employees are essential to a successful business. Therefore the recruiting and interviewing process is very important and should have a lot of thought put into it.
What is the purpose of an interview?
The employer will use an interview as a way to get to know the applicant a lot better. A resume does not go in depth on how someone would handle a difficult situation or their work ethic. The interview is where the employer can go further in depth and get examples of previous encounters. In general the applicant can validate their resume. Ultimately, the employer will learn a little more about your personality.
Why would a company have a phone interview?
How successful is online recruiting?
Online recruiting makes the recruiters job easier. With today’s technology the recruiter can type in key words that they are looking for in a new hire and all resume’s with these keywords will appear. This is also a great way to eliminate discrimination. An employer will not know the applicants race, gender, age etc.
•Summarize the literature and identify the main argument in support of the research questions or intervention.
•Assess sources specific to research questions, describing the author’s credentials, arguments, objectivity, persuasiveness, and conclusions.
•Analyze sources, including the methodology, to determine their strengths and weaknesses in how they impact our understanding of the intervention orthe research questions.

Online recruiting faster
Not as formal as a job fair
•Include a conclusion that ties together the literature addressed and reiterates the connection to the research questions and the main argument.
