Recruitment Resources

Human talent is the world’s most sought-after commodity and the process of searching and attracting this commodity is at the heart of every organization. Recruitment is the process of searching out and attracting qualified job applicants, which begins with the identification of a position that requires staffing, and is completed when resumes and/or completed application forms are received from an adequate number of applicants.

Once your department identifies the need for hiring, the source and method of recruitment will be chosen. Each department can recruit from within their area and/or outside the University. Many departments begin by recruiting from within to provide a promotional or growth opportunity which enhances commitment, morale, and performance. That said, if any vacant positions cannot be filled by eligible employees, the hiring department must hire externally. Online recruiting, which includes accessing internet job boards, using SUjobopps, and social networking websites, has become one of the most popular external recruitment methods for many departments. Lastly, co-operative education programs and job fairs are also among some of the most powerful methods of recruitment. Here are several recruitment sources to choose from:
