Purdue's Hiring Process

  • After you create a profile and apply to a position, a Talent Acquisition team member will review your resume to determine if you meet the minimum requirements for the position. 
  • For those that meet the minimum requirements, the hiring manager will then determine the most competitive applicants for the position.  Please do not contact the hiring department directly during this time.

  • Because the applicant pool is highly competitive at Purdue, simply meeting the minimum qualifications does not guarantee an interview.
