I. Introduction

This handbook is intended to assist hiring officers throughout the recruitment and hiring process. Each section provides key information about that stage of the process. The appendix provides sample forms and letters, relevant policies, and worksheets.

A) About Recruitment and Staffing

The University of Pennsylvania has a unique culture: an historical perspective coupled with a commitment to the future. Penn offers the advantages of an Ivy League University in a major city and a generous total compensation package, so it's clear why job seekers pursue employment here.

The University of Pennsylvania takes pride in being an Employer of Choice, and to help maintain this designation, Recruitment and Staffing provides a variety of services to both internal and external candidates and hiring officers. We also actively explore ways of reaching out to the community to attract highly qualified candidates and to share our latest advancements and accomplishments.

Recruitment and Staffing consults with hiring officers on many issues, including:

  • Posting job opportunities on Human Resources’ Careers at Penn webpage (https://www.hr.upenn.edu/career).
  • Prescreening applicant pools and forwarding resumes
  • Rating candidates based on credentials
  • Advertising and sourcing candidates
  • Interviewing practices
  • Hiring candidates

Recruitment and Staffing also provides instruction to internal and external candidates on the application process and serves as a resource for job seekers on topics such as cover letters, resumes, and common interview questions.
