The traditional method of recruitment has been revolutionised with the emergence of the internet but has not been placed. The introduction of the internet has changed dramatically HR recruitment and the way the HR function now thinks about recruitment function. Many organisations are using the internet to recruit new talent they are using e-recruitment to post jobs and accept C V ’s on the internet, and correspond with applicants by email.

In this paper, the research will look and the role of social recruitment sites in recruitment and also e-recruitment and its practice by Irish organisations.
