Recruitment Process Manual

Does recruiting the right person for the job sometimes seem like a matter of luck?  Applications come in, you interview the candidates with questions you think are legal and, hopefully, you hire a capable, loyal employee.  Sometimes it turns out that way, and sometimes you’re not so “lucky”.  But there are ways to improve your chances.

This page  contains links to steps to recruiting as well as examples of specific interview questions, regret letters, and reference-checking guidelines.  These are the tools you’ll need to hire not only a capable loyal employee, but also one who will embrace the St. Edward's Mission, Vision, and Operating Principles to become a successful and contributing member of our community.
