Abstract: newline Extant literature on recruitment has focused on traditional sources of recruitment like company brochures, career fairs etc, and impact of such sources on post hire outcomes like productivity, turnover intention etc. The impact of recruitment information and recruitment sources on pre hire outcomes is still inconclusive. With the advent of technology and ease of access to internet, company websites have now become a primary source of gathering recruitment related information. Apart from company websites, job seekers are also using company independent websites, forums or online communities to gather a more truthful picture about the job and organizational attributes. Social media too has become a very important medium where the current employees share their experiences regarding how it is to work with the organization. Despite the widespread and practical use of these new and innovative medium, very little is known about how these independent sites influence recruitment pre hire outcomes. In this direction the proposed study attempts to investigate how job seekers perceive company independent websites as a tool for providing recruitment communication and their impact on organizational attractiveness. The current study has proposed and tested eleven hypotheses. newlineThe purpose of this study is to examine which among company independent and company dependent sources is perceived to be more credible source of recruitment. The study also tries to examine which among company independent and company dependent sources provides realistic information and specific information. The study also tries to examine the impact of credibility, realistic information and specific information on organizational attractiveness. It is known from the extant literature (Caldwell) that people high on conscientiousness and extraversion are high performers both in the interview process and in the job. However what is not known is the job search and information seeking behavior of people high on these personality traits.
