Recruitment In The Public Sector

Question #2 You have a newly approved professional position in your public agency that will trigger an open search. It is a desirable position and will likely have many qualified applicants. Your department employs several people at a lower grade who are likely to apply who may or may not meet the technical qualifications and, may or may not be the best fit for your department. Because of the popularity of these employees, you are concerned that the process not turn into a sham recruitment.

Explain what you would do to ensure that the best candidate is hired (inside or out), and not simply the candidate who is best connected?
