The purpose of this study is to examine web-based recruitment to short term summer jobs at the SocialServices Department in Luleå municipality in Sweden. Recruitment goals, selection options on therecruitment homepage Offentliga Jobb and recruitment practices were analysed in order to reach a deeperunderstanding of the interactions between these three levels in the selection process. Pre-selection throughOffentliga Jobb was a special concern of the study. Different consciousness levels in the selection process areemphasised according to Anthony Giddens' structuration theory. Ten recruiters from different parts of thedepartment were interviewed. Due to the qualitative nature of the study the conclusions concern only theactual respondents and can not be generalised to the whole population of recruiters. Selection options andselection practices at the Social Services Department were found to mostly correspond with the municipalityguidelines for recruitment as well as with policy documents such as shared values. There are however someconcerns about the Offentliga Jobb homepage not being user friendly. There is room for improvement insome rooted selection practices such as using age to measure social skills of the applicants and applying aslightly different skill-set profile to applicants with perceived international background. The importance ofmaking a universal skill-set profile for all applicants and of reflexions on the selection criteria at discursivelevel of consciousness is emphasised.
