Ana Beatriz Alves Fernandes, Carolina Gonçalves

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter has as its main aim the understanding of the concept and evolution of e-recruitment and the study of its advantages and disadvantages in relation to traditional recruitment methods. This brief summary of the literature also seeks to understand which digital tools are available to human resources technicians, tools that are increasingly sought after by professionals in the field. Through this collection of scientific production, it was possible to conclude that e-recruitment, in growing valuation, is a methodology adopted by human resources professionals that, even if it faces some obstacles, can be used in a useful and effective way in the recruitment processes of organizations, since it is less expensive and time-consuming than traditional processes, also having more coverage in the disclosure of vacancies and the company itself.
