Internal recruiting is hiring and promoting candidates that already work for you. External recruiting is looking for new hires outside your organization. Therefore, internal vs. external recruiting isn’t really an either/or situation as most successful companies typically do both. It is in a business’s best interest to look at all recruitment options.
We wish to thank Indeed for sponsoring this article. Like many free and paid job boards, Indeed can help make recruiting easier, regardless of whether you’re looking for internal or external candidates.
