Discussion 1:

Question:

You are the HR manager for a commercial airline. You have been assigned to develop a realistic job preview for flight attendants. Your objective is to give a balanced picture of the job so that applicants will better understand what they will be asked to do. Job duties, schedules, and other facets of the job should all be well understood early in the recruiting process to avoid poor P/E fit later on.

1. How would you gather information about the job context and environment? Explain what sources you would use and why.

2. How could you use technology to show the positive and negative aspects of the job

An occupation of an airline steward is one of suffering extended periods, with little pay. The activity appears to be impressive., however it has its very own everyday undertakings that are dull in nature. It is moving to travel various nations. In any case, when others are on an excursion of are on a work excursion and getting a breath on plane, the airline stewards are buckling down. 

On the off chance that I am selecting airline stewards, I will have their desires altogether set. I would demand a progression of tests, including recreations of long flight ventures (de Brito Neto, Smith and Pedersen, 2014), consistent solicitations from explorers and uneasy or fierce flight rides. I might want to know their examination of these encounters and would enlist them dependent on the equivalent (de Brito Neto, Smith and Pedersen, 2014). 

The main test would be a trial of one's bent. Inclination is significant in a vocation when a representative is the essence of the organization (Yang and Yang, 2018). As airline stewards these workers will be the substance of the organization (Yang and Yang, 2018). Next, I would get ready tests in a way that the tests are taken in odd hours of the night. Airline stewards will frequently have unspecialized temp job hours. I would likewise test them for their language aptitudes. What I would not test them vigorously on is their insight into the business. Airline steward isn't required to be an exceptionally investigative of a key job. Thus, hands on preparing will enable them to make up for lost time with industry information and inner systems of flight tasks.

Human resource manager is present in every company who will guide and showcase how an organization work and realistic job previews will help pre-hiring assessment. So that we can get an overall idea of flight attendant job requirements. Moreover, sources that would be useful for information gathering are end customers because they have direct interaction with flight attendants. Furthermore, log sheets of flight attendants that contain data about their assignments and time spent on each task give an idea of their schedule for a better recruiting process. On the other hand, technology will help in both positive and negative way with respect to the job like using data analytics that will show the flight attendants issues and latest technologies like artificial intelligence which will screen the candidates and the selected candidates for interview will be sent an email with YouTube link that will show a demo of flight attendant day to day duties (Rosenau, M. D., & Githens, G. D. (2011)).

In addition, sites like LinkedIn and so on will give an idea about how the market is doing with similar flight attendant job profiles. Preparing a job preview for any kind of job is a little tough task to work with. It’s not easy to communicate the exact requirement in the job requirement preview. A flight attendant job is not an easy one though it comes with a lot of perks. The requirements for flight attendants jobs vary in a huge way. One of the ways to prepare a job preview is to categorize the need in a clear way so that the applicant will know what the job requires and if he/she has that particular skill set (Dik, B. J., & Duffy, R. D. (2012)).
