At the direction of the Search Chair, Hiring Manager Assistant or Hiring Manager, applications can be reviewed.  Owners of the requisition will put together a search matrix to help determine qualified candidates based on posted job duties, qualifications and requirements.  Questions about this process should be brought up to the HR Staffing Partner, who can aid in this process.

It is the responsibility of the Hiring Manager or Hiring Manager Assistant to track all search progress, which includes indicating or marking candidates that will be progressing in the search, ensuring approvals are obtained PRIOR to engaging in that step: (1st Round Interview, Reference Checks, Final Candidate Selection, Offer, etc).  Once candidates are marked for next steps, a complete and updated matrix should be sent to the HR Staffing Partner to review and upload to the search record.


Once the search has reached the step of drafting the formal offer letter, please reach out to the responsible HR Staffing Partner to ensure all previous steps are completed and approved.  The Staffing Partner will draft an offer using the appropriate template, and route that for approvals within the system.

Once approvals for the offer are obtained, the Staffing Partner will send out an electronic offer for the candidate to review and formally "accept".  This will start the processes that finalize the hire, which include: 2nd Pass Application, Background Screening and Hire.


As part of the hiring process, HR has designed an electronic Onboarding process to help ensure the new employee completes required training and hire documents and is provided with information that will help them be successful in their new position.

Hiring Managers will be able to track an employee's progress through this process via the Onboarding (transitions) area in HCM Recruiting.
