Search And Hiring Committee Best Practices

Hiring is one of the most important processes any organization undertakes. It addresses present needs, builds for future success and represents one of the most tangible opportunities an organization has to reinforce a culture and community reflective of its values. It is critical that hiring be equitable, effective and fully compliant with relevant laws, regulations, policies and internal expectations.

The Search Advisory and Hiring Committee Best Practices training eCourse will help participants identify and review:

  1. Federal and state laws and UC policies and procedures that govern hiring practices
  2. Strategies and techniques for ensuring equity through identification and management of biases that may influence search or hiring processes

This training is relevant and recommended for any individuals or committees engaged in search advisory and/or hiring functions.

Applicant Screening: The First Step In Hiring The Best

Talent management starts with hiring the right person for the job. Applicant screening takes a lot of work, and much of this work is done prior to the actual interview. This course covers how to create a job description, which will help you evaluate an applicant's resumé effectively. You'll learn key techniques for screening resumés based on job requirements, as well as how to identify red flag issues in resumés and how to approach them. These techniques will help you recruit, and hire, the best people.
