To address talent needs, talent acquisition works in partnership with hiring managers to identify candidates for job openings and builds pipelines for future needs.

Planning to interview

Before you begin, ensure you are aware of UC policies and local procedures on conducting an effective recruitment to ensure you hire for the right skills and competencies.

Here are some resources to help you plan for hiring new staff:

  • Diversity Resources

    To help recruit a diverse talent pool, a listing of diversity web sites has been developed to increase efforts in this area. Workplace diversity is essential to help grow and evolve as an organization. The listings provide sites that are geared towards Veterans, women and people from diverse cultures. Keep in mind that diversity is not limited to race and gender, but expands to diversity of experiences and perspectives.
