Abstract

Shortlisting is a recognised means of preliminary selection that reduces the number of applicants who progress to interview. It is generally based on an assessment of a structured application form or the applicants'curriculum vitae. Various criteria are used to determine the selection but there is usually a scoring system based on the desirable criteria in the person specification. It has the advantage of making the interview process more manageable by reducing the total number of interviews required and also by pre-determining the exact number of appointments.
