There are many points of view on precisely how to execute an efficient recruitment process, but there are a few key components agreed by all industry experts. For example, it is advised against a lengthy and complicated recruitment process. 

It is also widely agreed that simplified and streamlined application process is the prudent way for recruitment. The primary factor, however, for how efficient a recruitment process is, remains the number of perfect hires made, for there are three kinds of matches to every position: the good, the better, and the best.
