Hiring a new employee is no small task. From writing an effective job description to screening applicants to interviewing your top candidates, finding the right person for a job can be challenging. That’s why Human Resources offers resources to help you along the way.
We’ll partner with you on any number of hiring tasks, including creating job descriptions and posting them online, pre-screening and rating candidates, polishing your interviewing techniques, setting fair and equitable salaries and more.
You can also take advantage of our partnership with Unique Advantage to find skilled office support. Unique Advantage helps you find qualified applicants for administrative and support staff positions (grades 24 and under) as well as temporary staff members in a variety of areas, such as marketing, human resources, creative services, finance and accounting, information technology and customer service.
When you’re ready to make a job offer (no matter what type of position you’re filling), a background check must be completed first—and we’ll help you coordinate it. Penn partners with HireRight, one of the world’s largest background screening providers, to help you make an informed hiring decision. Just notify Human Resources of your preferred candidate, and we’ll take care of the rest. If a background check reveals that an applicant may not be suitable for a particular job, we’ll notify you as soon as possible.
