The Office of Human Resources will work with every hiring manager and search committee chair in effort to fill posted positions (whether for faculty or staff) with the most qualified candidate. All positions must be approved through Careers. If search committee members have not previously served on a search committee, the chair should reach out to HR to schedule search committee training prior to, or during the committee’s first meeting. If it has been more than 18 months since any committee member has gone through search committee training, the chair should reach out to HR to schedule training for those individuals. 

Before any candidate can be approved for an initial interview, the hiring manager or search committee chair must forward their short list and the matrix/rubric used to screen applicants, to Selenseia Holmes at  Information sent should, at minimum, include:  

  •   Job ID Number
  •   List of those selected for initial interview
  •   Explanation for selection
  •   Explanation of exclusion for all non-selected applicants

Committees cannot proceed with interviews until they have received the okay from HR.
