How Do I...
Close my search?
To close your search, you must fill out a Search Summary Form, regardless of whether you are suggesting a candidate for hire or failing the search. To ensure your new hire has the appropriate permissions and is in our system, make sure to fill out a Personnel Recommendation (PR) for benefited employees. For student/temporary/part-time hires, fill out an Electronic Personnel Action Form (EPAF).
Hire someone in an emergency?
Emergency Hires serve as temporary, one-year job placements to ensure that job duties are fulfilled for a specific position, while giving the department time to conduct an open, competitive search. In the event that a qualified hire cannot be made within the initial one-year Emergency Hire appointment, the current Emergency Hire may be extended by an additional year, subject to approval by the ISU Office of Human Resources. You can submit an Emergency Hire Request via DocuSign.
Hire someone without running a search?
Search Waivers are requests to permanently fill a vacant position by circumventing the implementation of an open, competitive search. To ensure that Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity requirements are met, Search Waivers are given heightened scrutiny, and are only granted under limited circumstances. To receive approval for a Search Waiver, your proposed incumbent must be exceptionally well-qualified for the open position. You can submit a Search Waiver Request via DocuSign.
Requst a new position/Position Control Number (PCN)?
New Position Requests require the establishment of a new position (PCN) outside of the normal budgeting process. This form requires a rationale or justification for the new position, as well as thefunding source of the proposed action. New Position Requests also require the approval of the Vice President. You can submit a New Postion Request via email by filling out the form and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
