Hiring Process

All hiring packets require approval from the Budget Director or designee. Approval is needed both when the position is posted and when the position is filled.

Request to Post

The “Request to Post” form is received from the originating department. A determination is made whether there is funding for the position at the level requested. All vacant positions are budgeted at entry level. The department can request that the position be reclassified. If the position is reclassified, the funds needed to raise the level of the position will come out of the reclassification fund. The department also has the option of providing operating funds from within their own budget to raise the level of the vacated position. The Budget Director assigns a position number and signs approval for the position to be posted. The paperwork then gets forwarded to the appropriate vice president.

Request to Hire

The Employment Recommendation is received after review and approval by Human Resources. We ensure the accuracy of the pay level, budget, position and cost account. After approval by the Budget Director, the paperwork then gets forwarded to the appropriate vice president.
