Internal recruitment is the process of filling job vacancies and open positions with employees from within the company. The applicant pool is limited only to those already employed within the organization.

In a close internal recruitment system, employees are not informed on job openings. The manager typically informs Human Resources of an opening and a list of potential internal candidates meeting the given criteria is drawn up. The manager then interviews the candidates and fills the position with the selected candidate. In an open internal recruitment system, employees are informed of open positions. In this process the manager notifies HR of a vacancy and then HR post the job opening publicly (within the company). Applications are then screened and a list of qualified candidates given to the manager for interview and selection. The manager then interviews and selects a candidate to fill the open position.

3) A targeted message involves tailoring the message to a particular audience. Such a message should describe the inducement likely to attract experienced internal employees.
