Checklist to complete the hiring process for posted positions with Continuing and Temporary Appointments
A number of steps and forms must be completed before a position is offered
to a candidate. Use this checklist to verify that all of these requirements
have been met.
(Check the boxes as you complete each step.)
UMD HR&EO SCREENS the online applications to make sure that applicants
meet the essential qualifications.
Application from those who meet the essential qualifications are then ROUTED to the hiring department for review. The URL is https://employment.umn.edu/hr/
As you review the applications, make sure to UPDATE the Applicant Status.
a) After reviewing the applications in relation to your selection criteria,
you may select applicants for interviews. The following are the recommended
guidelines for the number of applicants to interview. Any deviation
from these guidelines should be discussed in advance with the UMD Department
of Human Resources and Equal Opportunity. You may choose to increase these numbers.
b) Have each interviewed candidate fill out the Employment
Application Release Form to be submitted to UMD HR&EO. Advise the candidate that this is a highly confidential form and only for use if s/he is chosen as the final candidate. The information will be used to verify degrees and employment. If the candidate is not selected, the form will be shredded.
Once you have made your selection of the final candidate, submit the following forms to UMD HR&EO for review and approval:
1. The signed Employment Application Release Form.
2. Final candidate’s Application Form.
3. Employment Hiring Certification Form for Final Candidate (PDF / WORD) - hiring department completes and signs this form for the final candidate.
It is the responsibility of the hiring department to verify the employment history, degree,
license and certification of the final candidate as stated on the Application Form. Employment history specified in the application
up to the last seven years of employment must be verified. Degree, license,
or certification of the candidate even those that were not a requirement
for the position must be verified if the applicant specified it on the
application, regardless of whether or not it is an essential qualification.
Upon request, UMD HR&EO will verify the degree for the hiring department. If the degree verification requires any fees, the amount will be charged to the hiring department; i.e., National Clearing House charges $6.50 per verification.
