There are also some disadvantages in over reliance on internal sources.

In the contrast recruitment from out may help to reduce the inbreeding often associated with internal sources.
The external source deals with people who are current employee of another company. The people that fall under this category and under employed, unemployed person, newly qualified applicant and dissatisfied workers.
These experienced outside employee will act like a new brooms and they sweep clean. They bring in enthusiasm and new ideas to the organisation.
