III. Reviewing Applications
Applications received in response to a posting will be reviewed by the Recruitment Services department against requirements listed in the recruitment. The application documentation of those individuals meeting the minimum posted specifications will be released electronically to the hiring manager. The Recruitment Services office will announce the availability of the pool via email.
Prior to scheduling interviews, the hiring manager must determine the selection criteria by which all interviewed candidates will be evaluated; priorities should not change after the interviewing process has begun. Well defined qualifications form the basis of an effective interview and selection process. The criteria must be based on the requirements described in the vacancy posting. Using the established selection criteria will aid in the review of applications and determining appropriate candidates for interview. This will greatly improve the likelihood of selecting a qualified applicant who will be a high performer.
