Candidate Prep

Hiring Process

Job Posting

Candidates can search for current openings through the job posting list. The job posting will provide details on the position duties, qualifications, and other details about the job.

Applicant Screening

Hiring managers may establish a screening process that best meets their needs. The screening timeline and process can vary for each position and may include a series of interviews or job simulations on top of an overall assessment of skills and competencies needed for the job.

Applicants may consider submitting a resume or other supporting material to highlight their interest and qualifications for the position.

Job Offer

Once a successful candidate is identified, the hiring manager will extend a job offer. The successful candidate must accept the job offer to initiate onboarding and the new hire verification process.


Before a new hire can begin work, they must complete new hire verification. Students should be prepared to show original versions of employment eligibility documents.
