Case Study AnalysisKelly KirklandComm/215September 12, 2014Colette Wanless-SobelThesis:Carl At ABC Inc, has run into problems at his job as a recruiter. Carl has a lack of organizational skills, leading ability, planning, time management, and controlling. I am going to discuss Carl's problems and solutions to those problems.Background:Carl Robins is the new campus recruiter at ABC Inc. He has hired 15 new trainees to work under Monica Carrolls, which is the Operations Supervisor of ABC Inc. Carl has a deadline to meet in order to have all of the new hires working by July.

Maybe he could see if the conference room was available, maybe the lunch room after lunch hours are over, or he could just use his office if he has enough room. He needs to contact all of the trainees who have not completed their applications and ask that they come in immediately to do so. Upon those trainees coming in, he should then send them immediately for a drug screen and tell them that if they do not complete this by the end of the day, they will not hold a position with this company.
