Attestation for Search Committee Members

Once all trainings have been completed (or have been completed within the required timeframe), search committee members are required to fill out an attestation form. The search chair will ensure that all attestation forms are completed before the priority date. Search committee members will not gain access to review applicants until the attestation form has been completed. 

Search Committee Guidelines

Below is an overview of all guidelines for serving on a search committee. All search committee members should be aware of the information in this guide. Any employees or community members serving on a committee for the first time should read through this entire guide and reach out to a Talent Acquisition Professional with any questions.
