The Recruitment Coordinator will be your main point of contact during the staff hiring process and will be happy to set up a one-on-one consultation with you to discuss the staff hiring process and offer additional resources.

For all searches, Human Resources will:

  • Advise regarding recruitment resources, including those with a focus on underrepresented populations.
  • Consult regarding the selection process: file review, telephone and on-campus interviews, reference checks, job offers, etc.
  • Respond to applicant inquiries and provide technical assistance to both applicants and members of the search committee for the Employment Applicant Tracking System.
  • Receive application materials, confirm that application materials have been received, and send notifications to unsuccessful candidates (except those brought to campus for interviews) at the conclusion of the search, all via the Employment Applicant Tracking System.

Please contact Human Resources at 253.879.3369 for additional information.
