Staff and Administrator Employment

Recruiting Services

Employee Services provides recruiting assistance to fill staff and administrator position openings, including applicant sourcing, position posting and advertising, and support in applicant screening, interviewing and selection. Current position openings may be found by accessing the Employment pages. The Recruitment policy is also available for review in the repository of Sonoma State University policies.

Recruiting Guidelines

Recruiting Guidelines are available online to assist Appropriate Administrator with the recruiting process. These guidelines are password protected, available only to those hiring managers who have completed training in staff recruiting.

Position Descriptions

A well-crafted position description is the cornerstone of any job. To assist managers in drafting positions descriptions, they will find general position descriptions for positions commonly recruited on campus (these position descriptions are password protected), there is a position description template (doc) that is used, and instructions (doc) for completing position descriptions.

Emergency Appointments

An emergency appointment is typically used to fill a short-term absence, or may be used to fill a vacancy while a position opening is filled. Staff Emergency Appointment Guidelines (doc) are available to assist managers in filling emergency appointments.

Independent Contractors

Employee Services provides initial review before departments may contract with an individual as an independent contractor. Please complete the Independent Contractor Review (doc) form and forward it to your Human Resources Manager for review prior to making any arrangements to hire an independent contractor.
