Note: I also published this article on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-i-explained-recruitment-5th-graders-aldi-ramadhika Last week I joined a social movement called Kelas Inspirasi (Inspiration Class). It’s a movement where professionals go to marginal elementary school to share about their professions to inspire and motivate the students. Various professionals voluntarily participated in this movement, such as police, chef, architect, journalist, dancer, judge, etc – and of course, me, an HR professional. As an HR whose one of the jobs is to recruit talent, I decided to share about recruitment. At first, I feel it’s kinda hard to explain since the concept is a bit complicated and not common for kids. After a few thoughts and discussion with friends, I had ideas to simplify the explanation. Here’s how I did it.
