I need help with the assignment below:

4. a description and sample of the test(s) that I would use employee selection;
5. the way in which I will interview the candidates explaining:
· the type(s) of interview
· the types of questions, with examples minimum 5 questions relevant to position
6. The training process and training methods that I will adopt for the newly hired employee(s); i.e. what kind of training delivery method, how long would I suggest, what type of training?
7. I should make checklist of the implementation strategy for a performance appraisal system
