RECRUITMENT and orientation process 

Recruiting Process

  1. Review and follow Job Posting Instructions

  2. Human Resources will post the position and send an email to you as the search chair with information about the recruiting process.

  4. You will have access to share the google drive folder with your search committee.

  5. Invite the HR Specialist to all search committee meetings. This allows the HR Specialist to stay updated on the search and move the candidates into different statuses in the recruiting system. Some statuses trigger automatic emails to candidates to let them know where they are in the process. This will help allow the best candidate experience.

  9. The candidate will then receive an offer letter from the Vice President for Human Resources or the Provost through the Ascentis Recruiting system.
