Hiring is not a simple task. An efficient and effective recruitment and selection process ensures the successful hiring of qualified and diverse individuals who reflect the campus' positive image and can contribute to its growth. Careful and adequate attention must be given to each step of the process and those involved in the selection process should be properly equipped to ensure a successful hire.

Several resources to include, training, best practices and guidelines, are available to hiring managers, search committee members and support staff to assist with each step of the recruitment and selection process. In addition, the Talent Acquisition team hosts the UCR New Staff Orientation; a great way to learn about the history of UC and UC Riverside, the mission of the University, our future goals, campus growth and much more.

UC Riverside's (UCR) Human Resource's Talent Acquisition team is available to departments across campus to assist in recruiting and landing the best candidates for open positions.
