Hiring and Search Committee Procedures

Initiate the job posting. Conduct the search. Hire the successful candidate.

The College of Agricultural Science has enacted a specific protocol for hiring faculty and postdoctoral scholars.

Begin the search process, help candidates apply, and initiate the hire.

Penn State Extension has a large population of wage employees and is considered a "decentralized wage unit." As such, the college will continue to provide wage onboarding within extension rather than sending them to Shared Services.

To receive access to applications, cover letters, and resumes in the Electronic Jobs Management System (EJMS), employees must first review the College of Agricultural Sciences Search Committee Training.
