This study examines the perceptual differences between graduate recruiters and graduates in the usefulness and importance of recruitment and selection tools. The findings showed that there were significant differences in the perceptions in the importance and usefulness attached to recruitment attraction tools. Graduates perceived the importance of donations of funds and or equipment to universities, employer directories, press advertisements, internet job boards to be more important. Graduate recruiters perceived that company website to be important. Graduate recruiters perceived that donations to Universities and the creation of subject prizes and advertisement in employer directories to be less useful. Graduates perceived that referrals from friends and or relatives to be more useful. Graduate recruiters tend to put more emphasis on using selection tools which emphasize communication skills.
