Talent Acquisition Services:

  • Recruitment Strategy Meetings – these meetings are designed to allow recruiters to strategize with and gather information from a department’s hiring manager for a position. This includes finding out what a hiring manager is looking for in a candidate (i.e. education, experience, certifications/licenses, computer software programs, etc.) as well as if they would like any specific outreach to be done for that position, such as advertisements of the role on certain websites or with certain organizations. The meeting will also seek to see what the role of the position is within the hiring department/division/overall university, as well as establishing a timeline for when the position will be filled.
  • Posting Positions – assistance with posting the position in sites such as the USC Careers site, LinkedIn (we have three revolving postings for 30-day increments), or niche websites specific to a function or department, such as Dice or Educase for Information Technology Positions, or NASPA/The Placement Exchange, or InsideHigherEdJobs.com for Student Affairs positions.
  • Interviews – this includes recruiter phone interviews/guides, on-campus interviews/guides, partnering with the department’s support staff to schedule interviews, as well as hosting interviews for director-level candidates and above.
  • Post-Interview Services – Includes reference checking, offer extensions and offer letter development, background check initiation, and scheduling onboarding.
