The research attempts to examine the recruitment and selection process of talented people in the Kurdistan region and Iraq in general. Our intention is to find out how organizations within the region during the period of socio-political and economic instability can be able to attract, hire and retain talented employees that will facilitate organizational objective. In a crisis of such tremendous magnitude, it is not easy to attract skilful staff who may want to work in such a region or country. Our observations, therefore, suggest that instability impacted negatively on the recruitment and selection of talented foreign employees to the Kurdistan Region and Iraq.
