The research is focused on the importance recruitment plays in Nigeria as well as Selection in getting the right Candidates. Care must be taken to ensure that only prospective candidates who are qualified to get employed in an organization.

Findings revealed at the research result. Findings revealed that an organization must have a good policy that handles issues of recruiting and selecting, and put procedure in place in order to attract qualified employees.
