After you’ve put together a pool of candidates who—at the very least—meet the minimum qualifications for the position, the recruiting process is essentially complete. At this point, the selection process can begin.
In most cases, candidates submit résumés during the recruiting process. (This may not be true for all positions, such as for certain entry-level positions.) From the candidate’s perspective, résumés are essentially advertisements that are designed to get the candidate’s foot in the door. This statement is actually quite literal because the candidate’s goal at this point is to be invited for an interview.
