As a part of the Internship Program of Masters of Business Administration program at BRAC University, I have been assigned for doing an internship project at RANGS Group where I am working as HR Executive. In Rangs Group, I have been assigned for completing day to day HR activities from manpower planning to separation of an employee of the designated unit. The position is also responsible for carrying out all sorts of organizational development related activities (e.g. competency mapping, succession planing, training and development, performance appraisal, process improvement, Job Advertisement etc) as per the management decision. My organizational supervisor is Mr. Muntasir Mynuddin, Manager, HR, Automobile Division. My project is to discuss on "the existing gaps between required capabilities for a vacancy and the available capabilities in a shortlisted candidates pool‖. This has been assigned by my faculty supervisor Mr. Saif Hossain, Lecturer, BRACU and my organizational supervisor also approved the project and authorized me to prepare this report. The main goal of this project is to find out and conceptualize the existing gaps between required capabilities for a vacancy and the available capabilities in a shortlisted candidates pool. Employers and recruiters want to hire the best people for their openings. Employers advertise a position when they want to hire a person who will work for the company. From the employer perspective, they want people in their organization to work their way up. It is the best to have someone who is multidimensional and can grow with the company. So before giving any job advertisement they fix some criteria for their desired position and then hire the candidate. Along with it from the candidates‘ perspective they might not have the specific accomplishments or industry experience listed for the job, but they might have the right skills. So there are some existing gap between required capabilities for a vacancy and the available capabilities in a shortlisted candidate‘s pool. So by collecting candidates‘ data for any specified role we can find out the basis for applying to a job even it doesn't meet the minimum job requirements and also can find out the employers view to select any candidate for the required position.
