Getting a job is one of life's big challenges. But how does it look from the employers' point of view? This documentary looks at how a small business, a hospital, and a supermarket recruit their staff. SMALL BUSINESS: Small business SNS supplies computer networks to schools and has to work out their job specification for a new position from scratch. They advertise the job by means of word of mouth and look at how well presented the applicants' letters and CVs are. HOSPITAL: East Kent and Canterbury hospital is looking to fill a vacancy for an office job with important responsibilities - ensuring cancer patients get their treatment on time. Unlike the small business, the hospital advertises the job both in the local newspaper and internally - and the wording of the ad is a crucial consideration. SUPERMARKET: Giant supermarket Asda asks its candidates to fill in an application form - except it's more like a questionnaire designed to weed out people with the wrong personality. Asda also asks candidates to come to a group assessment which involves a form of psychometric testing. THE INTERVIEW: All three organisations make their final decisions at the interview stage. The small business interviewers mark their candidates under particular headings, such as enthusiasm and leadership. The hospital puts a lot of store by supporting statements. In the supermarket, body language and appearance turn out to be important factors.
