The following resources may be helpful in your recruitment and selection processes. The resources are organized by the process phases outlined in the module. While some resources - particularly those serving as templates for documenting the recruitment and selection process - may be geared toward a specific employee type, many can be easily adapted to the specific circumstances of your recruitment and selection process.
Many Schools and Units provide resources for the recruitment and selection process. You should always review the information for your area and contact your human resource representative or appropriate school/unit administrator to learn more.
