Recruitment Process

The recruitment process has a number of steps and identifying your need for a job opening is the first one. Planning is key to the success of this process; this section below will focus on the initial steps. For more information about the overall recruitment and selection process, refer to the checklist.

Evaluating the Need and Preparing to Post

Ready to Post

As you move further into the recruitment process, ensure that you are familiar with the best practices. There are many tools and resources available to support you throughout the rest of the process, e.g., evaluating applicants, conducting interviews, checking references, and making an offer.

Once employees have been selected, the next step is orienting and onboarding them to the University and their new job. New employees need a clear understanding of policies, expectations, and operating procedures. The first few months of employment are critically important to the success of the employee and the long-term employment relationships. Links to resources and a suggested orientation checklist can be found here.
