Preliminary Screening of Applicants

Once your applicant pool has been approved by the EO Office, you may begin to review applications. Preliminary screening of applicants should typically be based solely on the minimum required qualifications as stated in the job announcement. Consider utilizing the sample Applicant Evaluation Cover Sheet below to determine who meets the required qualifications and who does not. Once the Search Committee has determined which applicants meet the minimum required qualifications for the position, these applicants should be further evaluated based on preferred qualifications, departmental needs and any other selection criteria that the Committee has agreed upon in advance. The Qualifications Matrix may be customized to meet the needs of your search.
