At USC, we have a strong commitment to bringing the best and brightest talent to cultivate and enhance the Trojan Experience. Provost HR therefore lives by the mantra, “we exist to help Trojans achieve greatness”. As such, we preserve this mantra by keeping diversity, inclusion and equity in mind.

In an effort to cast our talent nets as wide as possible, below are some of the many ways we are able to attract talent, both passively and actively:

  • Advertising
    • ConnectSC
    • Linkedin
    • General Higher Education Websites (i.e. Chronicle of Higher Ed,,, etc.)
    • Niche Higher Education Websites catered for a specific division (ITS – Dice and Educause; Student Affairs – NASPA (through the Placement Exchange), NACA and NIRSA)
  • Sourcing
    • Boolean Searches
    • Linkedin
    • Resume databases in niche sites
    • US News and World Report Rankings of the Top Universities
  • Cold Calling
    • Based on the sourcing research
